DIY Gold Shorts
So, I didn't make these fun DIY shorts, but my sister did! She saw these fun shorts on Luv AJ's instagram (below) and made her own using gold fabric she got at the craft store, a pair of cutoffs, fabric glue. I love the results and am so proud of my little sis-- she managed to get a finished look without having to break out the needle and thread!
Here's how you make your own:
1. Lay shorts on a flat surface, use tracing paper to outline the pattern for one side of of the shorts, tracing along the pockets, fly, and belt loops.
2. Use the pattern to cut out from gold fabric with a 1/4 inch excess around all sides.
3. Spread an even layer of fabric glue over the shorts, the affix the gold fabric. Be sure to follow the glue's directions. Tuck under and glue the excess fabric, or trim away with scissors.
4. Let dry and set according to the glue directions.
