The seventies are back and way better than ever with rainbow-pocket jeans. We love these for kids, but if you want to make a pair for yourself, go for it. No judgment here. Get to it and find your pot of gold!
Here’s how to make your own:
What you need:
- Embroidery floss
- White colored pencil
1. Mark your curve
Using your white colored pencil, make small marks where you want your rainbow to begin and end on your pocket. Then connect these two spots by drawing a curve. To perfect the curve of your rainbow, you can trace a frisbee, embroidery hoop or something else with a smooth curved edge.
2. Thread up
Thread your needle, knot your embroidery floss and stitch along the curve. Instead of the basic running stitch, you’re going to sew split stitches so your rainbow is a solid line. (What’s a split stitch, you ask? We’ve got you covered here .) Once you’ve completed your first row, stitch two more rows of the same color right alongside it for a nice, heavy line.
3. Keep stitchin'!
When you’ve finished your three rows, tie off the embroidery floss and snip off any excess. Repeat this process with all of your colors, until your pockets are bright and colorful!
