Seeing Spots. Polka Dot Jeans, DIY

I know you have been seeing the ever growing trend of Polka dot jeans.
 I love the way they look, so I thought that I might try my hand at making a pair.
I LOVE how they turned out.
 Now I just have to refrain from putting dots on everything I have.



Inspiration



Tutorial
 Things you need

  1. Jeans
  2. Fabric paint* I used metallic silver
  3. Round cap or I used a candle* I always look for things around the house to use*
  4. Paper plate
  5. Small paint brush
 Pour the paint on to your plate and practice a few times on a paper towel with your candle.

Dip the end of your candle into the paint and the start dotting your jeans



work your way down one side,
And then the other.

I took a small brush and filled in the dots that needed some extra love.
You have to let the front side of your jeans dry completely before you do the back side,
 mine took about 8 hours to dry

All Dry?
Then repeat on the back side

let dry over night.
Wait 48 hours before you wash and hang dry.

And now you have your very own pair of polka dot pants.



Why did I pick these jeans to re-style? 
Because these jeans had a small wearing hole in them.
 I turned the jeans inside out put fabric glue on them,
 then turned them right side out covered the flaw  with a polka dot,
 and now you can't even see it.

Happy Tuesday.
Lots of <3,
Anne
