DIY || REVAMPING JEANS TROUSERS TO SHORTS USING PATCHES + GIVEAWAY

Spread the love

I spent 30 minutes revamping jeans trousers to shorts using patches last weekend and I’m happy how it turned out. I wanted to create a cool custom shorts that I could wear for errands. To spend money on new shorts was not an option so I pulled this off. I brought out an old jeans of mine even if I’ve remained tenacious and couldn’t let go – it could be difficult picking out a jeans for this project – of which I can’t remember how long I’ve had it.

5.  Now,  place a cardboard on the patches and iron them. You would want to take about 3mins for each patch so it sticks on firmly.
