DIY : RIPPED JEANS

Hey guys! here is our first Do It Yourself tutorial !

Here is a simple and easy way to rip your old jeans using some basic tools found at home.

 SELECT A PAIR OF JEANS THAT HAVE BEEN WORN OUT .

It is better for you to select a pair of worn out / old jeans to rip them as it would be easier to rip them and the effect would look better too.

 TOOLS REQUIRED

the basic tools required are :

Old jeans

Scissors

paper cutter/ Knife

foot scrub

any book ( preferably thick)

coloured pencil/ chalk

STEP 1 : USE A PENCIL COLOUR/ CHALK TO LIGHTLY MARK THE AREA WHERE YOU WANT TO RIP YOUR JEANS

Place a book between the jeans and place it where you want to rip your jeans . This step is important as the book prevents you from ripping your jeans from the back (of the leg too). Make sure the book is placed properly and covers the entire area that has to be ripped.

the next steps involve making slits and cuts . run your knife/ paper cutter over the jeans in swift motions till the time slits are made. You need to keep at it for some time to loosen the fibers so don’t get worked up if it takes while ( 5 mins approx).

STEP 4 :  DESTRESSING THE JEANSDSC09328

Right now your jeans will just have slits in them and not look ripped. To give it the ripped -grudgy look you need to loosen the fibers further. To do so use your foot scrub and rub it over the slits . after a few minutes you’ll see that the texture of the jeans has changed and the white threads are visible. 

This is exactly what you want. Keep doing it for some more time and loosen the threads further.

STEP 5: CUT THE EXTRA THREADS

once you have your ripped jeans cut the extra threads according to your liking. You could have more threads hanging or less according to what and how you want your jeans to look like.
