BLEACHED STAMPED JEANS 

Brush the detergent on a stamp with a paint brush. Be careful to keep the detergent on the raised part of the stamp.

Press the stamp onto the jeans.

Be creative and make your own designs, you can also outline your designs with fabric paint and fabric glitters.

Note: Different materials will dry different colors.

TOO SHORT PANTS??? TURN THEM INTO CAPRI'S!

Cut jeans off just below the knee. Cut waistband off. Remove belt loops. Use fabric glue to attach wider trim all around bottom of legs. Glue braid around leg above wider trim. Leave 1/2" of denim showing between trim. Glue braid onto top edge of all four pockets. Glue on patches.

DIP DYE JEANS

Simply dip the hem of the jeans in dye, layer on different colors.  Dye a shirt to match.

BEADED CLOTHES

Stitch beads to the hems of shorts, pants and the neckline of plain t-shirts.

OTHER HINTS

Got a stubborn stain on a favorite shirt? depending on the size of the stain, you can stamp a design right on the stain and paint it with fabric paints.

Bleach spot? Make other bleach spots with a cotton swab to get a very neat "snowflake effect" you can faded them in by making the spots progressively smaller.

Can't saw a straight stitch? Cover your handiwork by gluing on a ribbon with fabric glue around the hem.
