Another Easy DIY

Here's a little DIY I worked on recently...remember the cut-off jeans I thrifted...
 ...they were a little too tight for a mom of a certain age...so I decided to try a little DIYon them...first I dipped the jeans in bleach...that whitened the bottom...then I wrapped the jeans in rubber bands and quickly dipped the entire shorts into the bleach...they came out with this great batik pattern on top...love.
 ...next, I cut open the sides...this is where I added the fabric panels...giving me the much needed slouchy fit that I love...

 ...it was pretty easy...on a DIY scale from 1 to 10...this is a 4.  Well, maybe not a 4...you do need a sewing machine...I wouldn't try to hand sew this...
 ...look at the cool pattern I got from tying them up with rubber bands and dipping them in bleach...
 ...I patched a hole with fabric...

 The first pair turned out so cute...I did another pair...they remind me of something you would find at Anthropologie or FreePeople...Only, mine are cooler and didn't cost $158.00...



I should probably sell them on ETSY.
