DIY: tribal print shorts

 

Tribal print is one of the hottest trends this side of summer (herehere and here) and Made in Pretoria would not be awesome if I did not include a DIY on it.

DIY: Trendy Tribal Print

  • Supplies: An old denim, a pair of scissors, bleach, permanent marker
  • Cut the denim’s legs off. Make sure you fit and mark where to cut before the damage is done.
  • For a distress feel, make small cuts. Put the shorts through a washing machine to get full fray effect.
  • lay the shorts’ ends in 1:1 water:bleach mix
  • Wait until you get your desired colour. This can take a while, so please be patient
  • With a permanent marker, draw the print on the shorts.

    What if you used some type of paint tape to make the designs, for someone who’s not great at drawing/basic shapes?

  6. Ginny says:

    Do you draw the designs on the inside or outside of the fabric? I’m just a little confused how the black permanent marker turned blue.

    Did you bleach the permanent marker after drawing the print or use a blue permanent marker?

    These are so cool! My sister made these and used tape stencils to make the patterns and they look awesome! But you probably should hand wash them because the bleach weakens the denim and her shorts got a huge rip in them after one wash and will never be able to be worn again :(
