I got some sharpies recently and I, of course, had to draw on my pants Cheesy I found a pair of jeans crumpled up in the back corner of my closet (which I hadn't worn for about five years) and started drawing on them!
They aren't exactly finished (I apologize for posting in the completed board) because I ran out of the pink thread I was using for outlines (it was in one of those huge kits with about 50 different colored small spools of thread in it) and I want to embellish them more, but I wanted to post them and ask you guys to post your sharpie pants (If you have any of course Cheesy)  The ones that I've seen on here already are amazing!
Plus, I ran out of ideas for what to put on the rest of the pants Cheesy

The Jeans (Which are sadly a little to big for me and way to short even for capris)

Butterflies (I can't decide how to decorate the wings because I don't sew very well.  I'm thinking sequins or beads...)

And this weird yet cool design that I found on the internet for a Photoshop vector tutorial.  Credit goes to this guy/gal: http://www.n-sane.net/guest_tutorials/vector_using_shapes/index.php

ooh those look nice
does the sharpie wash out or run when you wash it?
by the way I think the butterflies look okay the way they are, but if u wanted to decorate the wings, i think sequins would look pretty cute

Thanks Smiley

I'm not totally sure what'll happen when I throw them in the wash.  I drew the designs and colored them in first with regular sharpie and then, while I was trying to figure out a way to or set the sharpie so it wouldn't wash out, I discovered the Rub-A-Dub sharpies that don't wash out of fabric.  I bought a pair and colored over the regular sharpie with it.  My brother thinks the regular sharpie underneath will spread though so I'm thinking about ironing them because I think I read that doing so would set the ink.
I hope so anyway!

I'm glad you like them!  I wish you would post pictures of yours though!  I might be able to brighten them.

I've got a question for anyone who has reconstructed jeans:  If I were to cut off a leg, would that screw up the seam on the side?  Would the pants fall apart?
I'm thinking of doing something like this with the pants (I really hope I'm not making any mods mad for this being uncompleted):

Cutting the legs and putting in some fabric to make them longer.  Do you think it would work?

You can definitely cut them off and add fabric in the middle - I do it with my daughter's pants all the time!  Just cut where you've a mind too and when you sew the fabric to the jeans, you'll make a new seam, those sideseams will be fine!  I also add fabric to the sides of her jeans and that's cute too.  She's almost 11yo, but she's almost 5' tall and weighs 95lbs.  So keeping her in jeans is a chore.  We had to get creative!!

Good luck, I want to see them when they're done!

The fabric-in-the-middle idea sounds like it'd be cute. The Rub-a-Dub sharpies work pretty well - when I used them on my jeans, they faded a lot in the first wash, but I think it just looks like they faded more because they were so dark at first(I'll edit this post with pics when I get up next...in a very lazy mood today Tongue ). I used 'em to make a Streetlight shirt too, though, and they still haven't faded too bad. Keep us updated on your capri-to-jeans operation! Wink

edit: 'kay, here's the pics(ignore Scooter and Yoyo, they got curious...aren't they cute though?!)







They're song lyrics, if you hadn't guessed...with the band name(in the case of NOFX)/logo-type thing stencilled or bleached on there, too.

And by the way, nice job on the edging of the designs in pink thread. I never would have thought of that.

Thanks for confirming that it will work-I think I'll need to have  my mom help though Cheesy

sapphire_distortion-Yours are cute (And so are your dogs!)!  The lines are crisp on your designs and the bleached parts look great!  I have to ask though, where did you find the colored Sharpies?  I only wanted black, but I was trying to find colored ones for my cousins who were very interested in the concept of drawing on clothes Cheesy

Oops, my bad. The colored parts are fabric paint. I do know, however, that colored Sharpies exist because my sister has a set. I think I may have seen either some sharpies or some kind of fabric marker relatively cheap at Michael's - do you have one of those around you? If not, I'd try Walmart(*shudder*) over in the school supplies area. Oh, and thanks Smiley

Ooh, I love those! I write/draw on my pants all the time-with washable pen, not sharpie, though-so maybe I'll try this :-)
