Jeans w/ holes in them is the new style, but a nice pair can go for over 100 bucks.  I couldn't pay that much, so I revamped my favourite pair and viola!  Cool jeans, for less Green!



PS. Please don't mind the spots in the picture; fabric scraps from a project I'm in the middle of...

Since I'm really bad at explaining in words, I'll just make a tute:



My disclaimer is that I went through a few jean scraps before I got it down, I strongly advise you to practice on a scrap!!  If my tute is unclear, feel free to tell me and I'll try to explain it better.  Also, sorry that the picture is kind of small, It shouldn't get too distorted if you need to enlarge; it's supposed to be vector.

a good way to start out the hole is to use a cheesegrater. ha, no, seriously. then you just rough up the edges a bit with fine-grain sandpaper. it makes it a little easier, i think. and if you don't have sandpaper? use that concrete sidewalk in front of your house!

i find it kind of silly that not only does american eagle sell "distressed" jeans for mucho dollars, but they made the tag into a little piece of sandpaper, so you can further destroy them.

WoOt.  Now, I can destroy my jeans.  I didn't want to start without knowing how to do it.

Hah, that's amusing.  Making the tag out of sandpaper.  Brilliant Idea with the concrete sidewalk Wink  It's so cold out though Cheesy
