Materials:
jeans
knife
scissors
textile marker/sharpie
brown shoe polish
sponge

Make holes by scraping the jeans with knife. (or cheese grate, sandpaper, etc.)
Draw design on with textile markers and sharpie.
Cut the very edge of the top of the pocket off. (and I mean just a sliver.) Scrape edges with knife to fray.
Destroy the bottom of the pant leg naturally because the pants are looooong. =D
Apply shoe polish with a damp sponge.

Tada!  They haven't been washed yet so I don't know how much they'll change.

those look fab! ^^
I for one, don't wear that style of jeans.. but it's much nicer when you can make them rather than pay $80 in a store for a pair! lol
