Star Spangled Shorty

My first DIY involving clothing and let me tell you, it was a challenge for me. Took about 2 days for me to finish due to my hectic schedule, but I am some what pleased with them. I am definitely packing these with me when I go to Orlando this weekend. I’m so Patriotic!

Use a razor or box cutter to distress your shorts. You can distress them as much as YOU want. Have fun!

Be careful not to cut the areas where you will place your bandana.

Grab your fabric glue and outline around the seams with glue. It’s ok to put dabs of glue in the middle on the side you will put the stars since it will not show through as much.

Cut the stars section from your bandana and place it on the shorts and press down gently. I let it dry over night just to be safe.

Once dry, grab your scissors and cut the edges of the bandana as close to the seams of the short as possible.

Now you are ready to do the other side. Just repeat the same steps for this side.

I had to double up on my stripes side because the glue was showing through.

Super Cute!

I will be sure to post how I styled them for your guys!

Please do not use a REAL FLAG.

I purchased the Bandana and Fabric Glue from my local Craft store.
