I seen a few variations of these flag shorts on Pinterest and I decided to make my daughter her own from a small pair of jeans since she was in need of another pair of shorts anyways. After seeing how awesome they turned out I decided to dig in my closet for an old pair of jeans too!
I used what I had on hand as far as paint went. Which was Krylon spray paint!! Not sure how long they will last for but, I did wash Z's pair again after I sprayed them because I wanted them to frail more and her dye held up very well. I cut the jeans, bleached them in a small amount of 50/50 water & bleach. Then washed. Taped them up and sprayed. Tape well!! I actually used the left over pant legs as an extra cover and I still managed to get some over spray.
After painting & before 2nd wash.
Z's "hippy" look. lol
