I did rock some serious bell's in the 90's, though.
I wanted to post a fun farmer's market/reusable shopping bag that I made over the weekend, but I'm wearing these jeans in the picture, so I figured these had to be posted first.
But seriously- you'll want to see the produce bag post, it comes with good info about organic vs. conventionally grown food (read: when to skip and when to splurge!).
This is a super quick project, it took about 10 minutes.
Here they are as is- I've owned these white jeans from J.Crew for about 4 years and haven't ever worn them. Not even once :/
I used some fabric paint to mix up a shade of light purple. Always use fabric paint when stamping- you will get the best results. Acrylic washes out, and it washes out unevenly. You can use the fabric stamp pads, but they have really light, uneven coverage.
I brushed the shade on to a fabric stamp from Hobby Lobby ($1.99) using a sponge brush and reapplied paint after each application.
On the bottoms, I did 3 paisley stamps, alternating tail up and tail down. On top of them, I did two paisleys with the tails facing in. I repeated this pattern on the back side.
I also put a paisley up by each pocket. Originally I was going to do the entire pant, but changed my mind. I may still go back and do them, but it seems like it might be overwhelming. If I had done an off-white shade, it would be cool the stamp the entire pant.
Here they are!
I'm not sold on the stamped pockets, but it's too late now!
I've done a lot of fabric stamping lately; it's a fun, quick and cheap way to change up a look. I hope your weekend was fab, we had a great time celebrating with my oldest charge as she took her first communion, which I hear is a big deal in the Catholic world. Don't forget to check back soon for that shopping bag and also for a recipe for some super delicious cookies. I'm still trying to name them!
