Blue Jean Baby.

So, I got this crazy idea in my head that I needed a pair of acid washed jeans and I needed them now. So, I took a pair of cheap Forever 21 skinnies and decided to go to town with some bleach. The following is actual photos of what took place. Proceed and mimic with caution.

(Start with a pair of jeans that you won’t mind ruining because let’s face it, I expected to ruin these. Oh, and put some makeup on for God’s sake and would it kill you to brush your hair?!)

(Take rubberbands or hair ties and twist them around sections of your jeans)

(Add 5 parts water, 2 parts bleach to a bucket)

(Submerge your jeans in the bleach-water mixture for about 45 minutes. Turn a few times as well)

(Once your jeans have gotten to the desired color, untie all of the sections)

(Rinse out all of the bleach with cold water. Then *THIS IS IMPORTANT* wash with cold water and NO detergent. Throw into the dryer once the cold cycle is finished)

(Voila! You have a fresh pair of acid washed jeans)

(HURRAY! I am pretty excited with the outcome, there is even a heart on my butt!)

These are pretty funky and were super easy to make. If you are looking for an easy activity on the weekend, this is a good one. My jeans  came out way better than expected, I will definitely be wearing them on weekends and at an upcoming 90’s party!

  1. You can even just “splatter” bleach instead of tieing up. That’s what we did in the ’80s. I made a peace sign on mine. LOL.
