Beckerman D.I.Y Heart Jean Shorts

Presenting The Beckerman Bite Plate D.I.Y (Do it Yourself) Heart jean shorts! Inspired by the Marc Jacobs Andy heart handbag! Watch our Step by Step Video on how to make these Heart Lovin' shorts! xo Beckerman Girls


Step 1: Get a pair of great,old jeans you want to cut into shorts. Also get four different colors of denim (Acid wash, light grey, sky blue, dark blue) for cutting out heart patches.


Step 2:Make two sizes of hearts (out of cardboard) and trace them onto the back of the colorful swatches of denim you are going to use for the hearts. Make sure you trace the hearts on the back of the denim. That way when you cut them out the pen is on the back of the hearts, and not on the front of them.


Step 3: Lay the multi-colored hearts on denim shorts and pin them in their desired places.(Pull out the pocket bags so they don't get pinned down)


Step 4: Sew the hearts down with your sewing machine in a "V" like formation while taking out the pins as you go. If you don't have a sewing machine you can use fabric glue instead. Just make sure you use a lot of it! Trim threads on front and inside!


Step 5: Decorate one back pocket with hearts! Its okay if you sew it down and the pocket doesn't open!


Step 6: Voila! You are done! YAY! (watch the video for more details!)
