1. I would say I’ve been busy, but the truth is I have three tests this week after a successful weekend full of philanthropy events and here I am sitting in class deciding maybe I’ll post something on my tumblr. …Literally I don’t think this class could take any longer. 

    What I wanted to post today was the ever trending DIY blue jean shorts. I got my inspiration off pintrest of course & kind of tried to make it my own. 

    LACE SHORTS: You will need: denim shorts, lace fabric, sewing supplies

    -buy shorts from platos closet (got some for $5!) 

    -cut to desired length

    -get a small square of lace material from a fabric store 

    -find someone how to sew (aka my mom) 

    -show them your vision

    -sew the fabric

    AMERICAN FLAG SHORTS: these were slightly more challenging and I needed more supplies but overall worth it! You will need: masking/painters tape (for stripes), some form of stick on stars or stencil to trace stars, red white & blue fabric paint, some blue jean shorts

    -get shorts & cut to desire length

    -tape off striped & stars (I’ve seen this done on the front or on the back pockets both are cute!) 

    -paint some white squares for the stars & the white stripes 

    - place down stars on white squares and paint over the whole side with blue 

    -after one color of stripes are done tape off finished area & paint the other

    -fully dry

About me

My name is Amy Urban, currently a college Senior at Texas A&M. I originally thought this tumblr account was going to be all about my photos that I take, but I realized the beauty of these accounts is that you can literally do anything with them. I am not set in stone on what all mine will entail, but I know what I like: photos, writing, food, music, traveling, family, and friends so be expecting some of that and then some!!
