DIY Distressed Knee Jeans
Before—find a pair of jeans that haven’t seen the light of day in years!
1
Mark just above the knees and over the knee with chalk while wearing them.
2
Put a piece of cardboard inside leg, grab a steak knife (preferably sharper than mine) & hack away!
3
Have at it! Pull at the strings a little as you go. (Some people use scissors and tweezers-I didn’t)
4
Try on partway through to see how much more you want to do.
5
Cut on the other side.
6
Be careful! Don’t cut yourself like I did. After you’re done distressing, wash and dry.
7
Before and Afters!
8
Let that pair of jeans from the bottom of the pile make its way to the top!
