Crochet Shorts Upcycle.

Hello all!

So today I have another old jeans upcycle. I have a few pairs of jeans I no longer really wear, so I figured if they will get more use as shorts, why not? For this pair I used an old black pair of jeans and crocheted a boarder around them!

It was really quite simple.

To Begin:

I started with just a simple pair of cut offs.


I then cut triangles into each side.


After that I cut small holes all along the bottom edges where I wanted the crochet boarder. The holes need to be just big enough for the crochet hook.


I then got to crocheting! I did three single crochets into each hole and then chained two between each one. For the triangles I did a series of double crochets.

Results:

The filled in triangles.




I really liked the end product! What do you think? Do you like the crochet/denim combination?
