Distressed denim cut-offs

I've been craving a pair of distressed cut off denim shorts for a while now and I finally decided to make my own from an old pair of jeans instead of spending a bunch of money on the new ones.
If you are considering making your own distressed cut-offs this is what you will need:

1. a pair of old jeans

2. a grater

3. scissors and 4.seam ripper

Step one:
cut your shorts down to size (you can use a pair of shorts you already have and like the length of as a model or just measure before you cut)

then roll up the bottom part, for a better finish

for the distressed look you can use the grater to soften the material. Then you will have to remove the blue thread so that the white ones are showing. The white thread runs vertically while the blue one horizontally so you will need to cut the horizontal blue threads and then pick them out one by one with the help of the seam ripper.

Ta da

Have fun making your own!
