Well, ok, so not all of time and space, just a few select nebulas and star clusters. Wink

It is spring break here, and like all those who have spare time on their hands I decided that some crafting was in order.
However, I was hopelessly uninspired, and ended up sitting in front of the telly and watching Doctor Who.
A friend of mine and I ended up hanging out watching Doctor Who and surfing Pintrest. (Multitasking for the win!)
Suddenly! Inspiration struck in the form of some ridiculously awesome patterned pants.
A desire was born in our hearts: the desire for nebula pants.

Here's how these pants started out! Super humble black jeans, right?

After a journey of bleach, paint, and lots of waiting for things to dry, I present...


Some detail shots for you:

You see the little saturn-like planet? That's done in glow in the dark paint, so it actually "shines" when you turn out the lights.
I also added quite a few glow in the dark stars, besides just the white paint stars, so they glow too!

This pocket is my favorite! Cheesy

Little shooting star like thing, it was a happy accident when I was splattering the paint to get the little "stars."

Some in progress shorts for you:

After the first bleaching... (I was soooo tempted to stop just then, I love how they look! But I'm glad I continued. Maybe another project, eh? Wink )

While painting! The plastic cover was a must since it was too cold to go outside. You can see my friend's jeans in the upper corner! Her jeans turned red/maroon from the bleach while mine turned yellow. Weird, eh?

I love these pants so much! Cheesy It was an absolute thrill making them, getting to splatter paint everywhere!
I hope you enjoyed. Thanks for looking at my first ever post here!! Cheesy

I never liked skinny jeans for myself. I just bought a pair of black ones to go with a rockin new pair of boots I got and I hated the fit. I actually wished the legs were tighter (believe it or not). Anyways...I think I want to go do this to them right now so I might actually wear them.  Cheesy
Guess Im at the right spot!! lol Here to craft an' chat!! woohoo!!!

Just going to throw this out there, it'd be really cute to have a tardis flying around on these. Maybe I'll make my own pair with the tardis.
Yours is absolutely beautiful! and I love your socks.
