Lots O' Dots

Hello Refashion Co-op. I decided to re-create some polka dot jeans I saw on Pinterest a few months ago. I got these jeans as hand-me-downs and thought they would make a perfect canvas for this idea. 

I used a yard stick to make diagonal chalk lines across the jeans. I kept them parallel to each other. It wasn't perfect but it worked.

I made chalk lines in the other direction so I had a X pattern all over the jeans. Again, it wasn't perfect but it was basically even. I made a dot of paint where the lines intersected. 

Here is the front of the jeans. I let it dry for a few hours and then flipped the jeans over and did the same thing on the back. 

My toddler interfered with the drying process and smeared a few dots on the back. Oops!

Here are the finished jeans. The dots look cheerful and fun for Spring. It was raining when this picture was taken but I was happy anyway.

What a fun refashion. I am inspired to try something similar with bleach.
