At one time, I fancied myself quite the crafter. As a tween, I once hand-sewed myself a purse out of my dad’s old jeans. In high school, I cut many a pair of jorts* out of old pairs of jeans (that I still wear!). These days I’ve been known to weave a friendship bracelet or two, but that’s about it.
Lately, I’ve been nothing short of dazzled by the DIY (do-it-yourself) skills of some of my favorite bloggers. How they have both the talent and the time for these amazing projects is a wonder to me! From making your own floral jeans to getting creative with a bucket of bleach and a denim shirt, here are three projects I may actually dust off my crafty hat for and try:
- … Love Maegan’s Floral Print Jeans: No, seriously – you can do this.
- Could I Have That’s dark ombre boyfriend shorts: I love this reversed take on the ombre trend, and it looks so easy, too!
- I Spy DIY’s bleach dip-died denim shirt: I think this looks so incredibly cool, and will be attempting it on the roof of my apartment building very soon.
*short for jean shorts!
