I’m fairly certain you have some old jeans in the rear of your closet that you do not wear anymore, but you do need shorts for summer. And not just any shorts, you may need cute, beautiful, amazing shorts come july 1st and don’t worry, I got you covered because I’m going to explain to you how to cause them to become. So let’s jump into your tutorial. First we’re also making these always fashionable American shorts. They are inspired with the american flag, to make sure they are packed with white — red stripes and white stars.

No, no, no, unfortunately we cannot have time to nap, we have some work to do. You’ll need old jeans, scissors, a needle, pencil or perhaps a pen, tweezers to distress the jeans, masking tape, star print outs, self-adhesive or merely normal paper, part of carton board, white and red fabric paint last but not least sponge applicator or paint brush to make use of the paint. First we should cut the shorts. Try them on and mark the length. You can employ a pencil if your jeans are dark as mine, a needle is more efficient. Remember to leave another inch of length because we are going to distress the sting. And of

Try them on and mark the length. You can employ a pencil if your jeans are dark as mine, a needle is more efficient. Remember to leave another inch of length because we are going to distress the sting. And of course it’s easier to shorten them slowly and gradually instead of cutting them short at the same time and ruining your jeans. Also you’ll be able to use any shorts you truly like to be a guide. I placed the best yellow shorts along with the jeans and cut them a lttle bit lower than the yellow ones in order to be sure.

Fold the jeans like so and cut additional leg. This way they shall be exactly the same on both sides. Then try your shorts on! Mine will be to long so I am likely to cut them again and I’ll cause them to become shorter inside front and a tad longer inside the back. Now it’s time for taking your anger out and distress the side that we just cut. Take your tweezers you need to pulling random threads out. You’ll see how your shorts are certain to get this cool distressed edge. Then work with a nail file or possibly a sand paper and rub them down the edges for any softer distressed look. In the conclusion I like to cut these white strands a lttle bit to cause them to equally long all around the extra edge.
