DIY Distressed Shorts + How to Bleach A Pair of Shorts

Hi guys! Sorry for not posting recently, I've been too busy of my studies. Thankfully, I made time to make this simple DIY project. I AM REALLY SORRY FOR THE LOW QUALITY, our camera was needed to be repaired, so I used my camera phone, instead. Let's get started!

I accidentally bought a pair of shorts without any reason, (must be the effect of studying hard ;)) and I was shocked to see them at my cabinet. When I asked mom whose shorts those were, she said that it was mine and I bought it. So, yeah. Pretty stupid of me, huh? :D

*Pair of shorts or pants you want to cut
*Marking tool
*Cutter, tweezers, or any distressing tool

STEP 1: Mark on how short you want your shorts to be.

STEP 2: Cut the desired length.

STEP 3: Mark the place where you will distress your shorts. (TIP: Draw an oval-shaped figure and trace lines inside the shape)

STEP 4: Using scissors or a cutter, cut the lines you have just traced.

STEP 5: Using the tweezers, pull the thread out of the shorts, and pretty much distress it.

This is how it will look like after an hour of PATIENCE.

STEP 6: (OPTIONAL) Grab a bucket, bleach, and water. Fill a bucket with 3/4 water and 1/4 bleach. Soak the shorts, and wait for 1-2 hours until you get the desired color. (FINALLY FIXED THE CAMERA HERE)

I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial, bye! :)
(P.S. Please leave comments, I love reading them :D)
