Fashion DIY #1 : American flag jeans

Hey luuuxers!
Here for you an other DIY project! After the bag and the jewelery, today I tried to renew a pair of old jeans I was not wearing anymore, but that I didn`t want to throw away just yet.
I got my idea a few weeks ago, when walking in Bologna (Italy) where I study I saw in a shop a pair of amazing pants with the american flag printed on it. The price was pretty amazing too, 75, and since I`m a broke student I can`t afford that! So, when you`re low on money, you should let your creativity it is, very easy..
I bought fabric paint, white and red; I bought it in a local store, but you can buy it pretty much everywhere. The, using a thick piece of cardboard, I started painting the stripes first. I made them pretty thick, but you can choose how to make them; the cardboard was helpfull to make sure my lines where pretty straight. I suggest you to paint first the stripes of the same colours, not mess them too much.
Once I finished with the lines I cut two pieces of the same cardboard and I cut the images of stars of different shapes in them; another advice, to make the shape of the stars you should use a thinner cardboard, cause the designs are gonna be much more defined.
I let the pants dry for two hours and then I ironed them to fix the colours and it`s done. A new amazing pair of pants ready to go!
Hope you like it!
Lots of love, Cee :)
