D.I.Y. Project,



If you haven't noticed, I have a bit of an obsession with hearts. I even designed a pair of high waisted jeans with hearts on the knees recently. This got me thinking... it would be super fun (and easy) to add hearts to the knees of almost any pair or jeans! I'm enjoying gathering new pieces for my fall and winter wardrobe, including a few DIY pieces like these jeans. I'll share how I printed mine below...


Outfit Details:
Jeans c/o Levi's, Blouse c/o ModCloth, Shoes/Jeffrey Campbell, Necklace/My design for ModCloth


Here's how I hand printed the hearts on my jeans
... 1. Try your jeans on (or hold them up to your body) and make a small pen or pencil mark in the center of your knee. This will be where you place your hearts. 2. Cut a heart from paper that is the size and shape you want for your pants. 3. Use the paper pattern to cut two stencils from contact paper. Place them on the knees and make sure they are both in the same position. Take your time, positioning is super important! 4. Use fabric paint or screen printing ink to sponge over your stencil. Dry and repeat until the area is completely covered. 5-6. Remove stencils and enjoy your new jeans! xo. elsie
