July 4th ‘Merica Shorts DIY

These are from a couple years ago, so I don’t have any detailed process photos. But, this was a pretty simple DIY made with fabric paint and foam brushes. I painted the stripes and stamped the stars.

Although a friend who works in denim insists that jeans are supposed to be stored in the freezer and never washed for preservation I have laundered these a couple times. After washing and drying the paint still looks the same as day one. Plus, who is likely to fit in jeans or want to wear styles from tens years ago?

Take a pair of old jeans, make these yourself and smile every time you put them on. Happy 4th!
