I've been seeing various red, white & blue attire popping up lately, possibly because the 4th of July is rapidly approaching, or perhaps everyone just really loves Merica right now. I pick the latter of the two.
But the tip of the patriotic iceburg was when I saw Monica rocking a pair of shorts she had found at le Tarjay.
Being that I'm cheap and stubborn. I refused to go buy them, because I knew I could make em myself.
I present to you: my DIY
stars & bars cutoffs.
Sunday after Family Breakfast I had my mom drag out a box of old jeans that she had saved over the years for craft projects.
I attempted to squeeze my notsotiny toosh into a bazillion and twelve different pairs, and finally landed on some real fashionable wideleg white capris. Meow.
And immediately took scissors to them. Out came the craft paint and I set to work.
I got a little giddy when I saw the red stripes coming to fruition. Yea, that's how lame I am. At least I can admit it. Heck, once the other side had a coat of blue I was blowing up Instagram with pictures!
I patiently waited to add my stars, and now... I present to you... probably the coolest pair of shorts I have ever made (Sorry 6th grade home ec teacher, the plaid boxers we made come in a close 2nd)
Tonight I am working on a pair to send to miss Melissa Jo! Spreadin the Merican' love my friends - that's what it's all about.
