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
