DIY SHORTS :)

Posted on Jun 14, 2012


So my friend Jasmin came over and we spent the day on shorts! It was a fun way to pass time and they all came out pretty well. From left to right:

Pink Floral: I took some fabric from an old shirt and glued it on!
Tan: I bleached my old brown shorts to a lighter color. It was seriously shit brown and they were from Goodwill.
Striped: I measured out the lines and colored them in with permanent marker. But I need to color it in more!
American Flag: Again with the permanent marker and I added lace to the back because when I colored the back I ran out of permanent marker. A nice cover up!
Teal: I just added lace to the back pockets :)
  1. really cute ones :D well done!
