Camouflage Painted Jeans

My 12 year old granddaughter, Allura, watched a video on you tube on how to make a pair of pants into camouflage material.  Later, we watched American Idol and saw that Jennifer Hudson also had a pair just like them on.  The next day we just had to make a run to JoAnn fabrics for some fabric paint. 

She drew all of the camouflage sections onto her jeans with chalk out of her sisters chalk box and then she started painting.  We bought brown, black, and white fabric paint.  I just left her run amuck, even though I was itching to get my fingers in there.  You can see how she drew in her sections and she is painting.   She worked for two hours and mixed colors to make gray and light brown.


After they dry for four hours you iron them with a pressing cloth to set the paint and they are finished!!  She was so excited to wear them and show them off.  She only painted the front of the pants, this seems to be the style!  She did a great job and plans to where them to a school lawnfate on Friday!

Those look great, Allura! I'll have to show them to Camden. I bet she'll want to make a pair.
