project: stenciled jeans
the jeans: i chose a pair of clearance mens faded skinny jeans with a slight drop-crotch for $10 that fit great, amazing!
the supplies and prep-work:
- fabric paints
- doilies (cut out center) & large flower print (cut out each flower to use as a stencil)
- dishwashing sponges (cut into six squares)
cutting to fit: i made sure to try on the pants with a pair of heels to ensure they were cropped to the correct spot. tip: always give a smidge extra of length since this will fray after the first use.
fraying: we used heel-smoothers and wood board to gently fray the jean edges, the fraying will continue to occur over continuous use.
the most challenging part, which i neglected to take pictures of, is the light paint application to the stencils to ensure the full flower/doily is seen. i used the cream and gold paint and layered the outline and inline of the flower stencil. my sister used the doilies and flowers in red on a pair of daisy dukes, another great look...
the end product:
any questions, let me know!
