I can't lie, I've been very much into the dip-dyed / ombre trend.  I decided to deck out some cheap jeans in time for the 4th of July...

First I bleached them (this took a long time - like hours.).  I washed them in the washing machine after. 



Then I dip-dyed the lower third in some red RIT dye (this also took a long time!)



Et voila!



Oh yeah, I took off the pockets and I kind of like how that turned out:

After making them I realized they look like the French flag more so than the American flag.  Oh well, at least they are patriotic in some country...
