DIY: Red White And Blue American Flag Shorts

Hey guys, its been a bit hectic this week so sorry for the absence but I'm happy to say Ive got a new camera yay! So i will be doing video tutorials on some of the things i make and this will be my first video.

The video will be posted in the next day or so on my new youtube channel which ill make sure to let you guys know by posting the link on here.

This is the picture tutorial step by step

What i used

Old white jeans
Permanent Markers
Star Stencil

First i cut my jeans into shorts, i cut them at an angle and folded them in half to make sure they were even.

Then using a star stencil i marked out my stars
Then went over with a small blue marker pen.
Once done i started to colour around all the stars
Then i marked out the red stripes with tape and coloured them in.

Iron on hot heat  to fix the ink And Done!!!

To make sure the ink stayed in i washed them in a normal machine on a 40c wash and although they faded a little i think i prefer them :)

My only regret is using two different permanent markers as one of the blues didn't fade like the other so in hindsight i would use only one. Oh well Learn as i go :)
