You can hardly ever walk along a beach and not find neat stuff like special shells and driftwood pieces. But itís hard to collect if you donít have any pockets so why not make this simple beach combing pocket and put your artist touch on it?
Pocket from unwanted jeans
Rope (clothesline works great) or cord
Needle and thread
Cut around the seam of the back pocket and up over the thick seam on top.
Cut off 2 belt loops. Sew a loop onto each top towards the side.
Slide the end of clothesline through the loop going downwards and tie a knot. The knot has to be big enough so it doesnít slip out so make a second knot if needed. Make the cord long enough to go over your head and across your chest. Tie the other knot under the other loop.
Brush some paint across the front of the pocket for background color. Take a pencil and sketch your picture on. Paint your picture and use puff paint to outline it or whatever design you would like.
Now you have a place to put some found treasures and itís small enough and light enough to take wherever you go!
