As 4th of July rounds the corner, the newest rage is American flag shorts (as seen all over Pinterest). Last night was my town’s rodeo and rodeo dance and I wanted to join the festivities pretty decked out. I searched all through Pinterest and liked the idea of the painted on american flag but with my time crunch, I wanted something to last through the wash and fool proof from my clumsy hands. In the morning I rushed to Hobby Lobby with a 40% coupon in hand and found some fabulous and cheap star and strip fabric as well as iron on fabric adhesive (which is way easier than a sewing machine my friends). I found a pair of my mom’s old jeans (slighty high-waisted and a mid wash color) and got to work. I finished just in time to get ready with some girlfriends and head to the Rodeo. I got a ton of compliments on the shorts and they looked fabulous! For a total these shorts cost me $6– but FYI, I purchased extra fabric and have enough to make more so they can be cheaper if you like!! Check out my photo editorial on facebook
