Pies + DIYs: How to Upgrade Your Denim
Welcome to another episode of Pies + DIYs! I’m sure you can guess what this series is all about — doing DIYs while eating pie :) You can tune in every Wednesday to pick what DIY project I (Kelly) will make LIVE! I only have three tools and six materials to work with to create the DIY of your choice. Hope to see you all there!
In this episode, we updated old jeans, converting them into jean shorts to get ready for summertime! Updating old clothes is one of my favorite things to do, and this is the perfect DIY for jeans that are too short, tight in the calf, or ripping too much at the knees.
The first upgrade these jeans saw was lace detailing, which I applied on the side of the short using my favorite glue, Fabri-tac. Next I used scissors and a cheese grater to make a distressed hole, and I added a piece of lace underneath. My last step was adding some bleach splattering with a bleach pen. Make sure you add the bleach once all the glue has dried. Splatter it on and wait 20-30 minutes for it to start changing color. After 30 minutes, rinse them under cold water to wash off the bleach.

Thanks for watching and we’ll see you next week!
