aprilgia 's Thoughts:

After seeing these distressed jeans, I wanted to go balls-to-the-wall with tearing up one of my pairs.

I got this jeans from the thrift store some time last year. They’re men’s Levis and the cut is a little different than I normally wear, and because of that they’ve been hanging around in my closet a little too much. (But hey, that made them the perfect candidate for my project!) Instead of using a knife for distressing like I had done in the past, I decided to just use a pair of scissors. I put the jeans on and marked where I wanted the slashes to be. Then I took off the jeans and held them upside down, aligning the creases together…basically folding each leg in half. Finally I used the scissors to make cuts. (The larger areas of distressing had three or four cuts in a row.) The last and most important step was to run the jeans through the washer and dryer.

After seeing these results, I think I need to be a little careful…I might end up destroying distressing all of my jeans! This new method I tried was so easy to do!
