Kelli started out by cutting the jeans to where they would cover the girl's bums. Hem however you like, Kelli used liquid stitch due to time. She then used a fabric awl to punch holes in the jeans.
- Row 1:
Using the fabric awl, punch the first hole in the blue jeans. Kelli explains that she finds it easier to crochet in each hole as she punches it. She started off by using a single crochet (sc) as a foundation around the jeans (Learn how to do a single crochet stich.) Continue around your jeans with sc, when you get to all of the way around, join with a slip stitch (sl st) and then chain (ch) 3. (Learn how to slip stitch and learn how to chain.)
- Row 2: Double Crochet (dc) in joining stitch (st). Do one 1 dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, continue around and then join with a sl st. (Learn how to do a double crochet stich.)
- Row 3: Dc in each stich around, join with sl, st ch 3.
- Row 4: Repeat row 3, finish off.
- Row 5: This row is worked in front loop only. With red, join with a sl st, 5 dc in same stitch, 6 dc in each st around join with sl st. Finish off.
- Row 6: This row is worked in back loop of previous row. Join white with sl st, ch 3, dc in each st around, join with sl st. Finish off.
- Row 7: Repeat row 5.
- Row 8: Repeat row 6.
For the little purses Kelly used a granny square pattern and just made a back the same lenght and width, joined with a sl st, chained a strap then sl st with it for added strength.
The halter top pattern was found on Crochet Pattern Central and is just 5 granny squares and 2 half granny squares whipped stitched together.
