How To Make American Flag Shorts

August 13th, 2012 // 1 Comment

Patriotism is all the rage in fashion right now. Red, white, and blue are the colors of summer. I don’t know who is responsible for the fad but thank you!

A fad I want to call attention to is the American flag shorts. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Rihanna have been spotted wearing the new look this summer.

How can you make like your favorite celebrities without throwing down some cash? Well here is how…

All you need are the following:

1.) Scissors

2.) Shorts (I prefer lighter denim shorts. But don’t go out of your way to buy em, just bleach!)

3.) A flag no smaller than your shorts

4.) Fabric glue

5.) Three sheets of printing paper

6.) Sewing needle and white thread

FIRST trace the outline of your shorts using a sheet of paper as your templet. Trace the left side of the shorts and the right side on different sheets. Once you are done tracing the outline of your shorts, cut each of the outlines out.

NEXT put the left side of your short’s outline on top of the stars of the American flag and use it as a templet of where to cut. Do the same to the right side of the short’s outline but using the strips on the American flag instead.

AFTER outline with fabric glue where you are putting the American flag cut out. To make the back of your shorts do not stick to the front, put a piece of paper in between.

FINALLY Once it’s finished drying, sew the outline of flag to secure it on the shorts.

Once you are done, you will be rewarded with a new pair of shorts perfect for the remainder of summer!
