Recycled Denim Pocket Hoop Art

by Albion
We're heavy into spring cleaning right now, and that includes sorting clothes that are past it and deciding what to do with them. I came across a pair of my husband's jeans that were worn out beyond anything wearable, but there was enough good denim left that I knew I needed to use it!
With a simple embroidery hoop, a bit of paint, and a pair of scissors, I created this fun Recycled Denim Pocket Hoop Art!
I just did a quick, fairly dry-brushing paint job on the embroidery hoop.
I then cut out one of the back pockets on the jeans, making sure I left enough fabric to cover the hoop.
I simply popped the pocket in the hoop at a jaunty angle (yes, jaunty!) and tightened it up. I finished by trimming up the excess fabric.
This was such a super-easy project and I'm going to get a ton of use out of it! for now, it's perfect for some spring color! And yes, I will be using more denim from this pair of jeans. Can't let good denim go to waste!
