How to Make Ripped Knee Jeans

Waheeey! I hacked away at some denim! I've even recorded a 'how to' video for this one. Basically, since buying my Joni jeans, these Internacionale jeans have become a bit redundant. So to give them a new lease of life, I decided to snip some holes in the knees and distressed them a little. Apparently, it's all the rage at the moment - well, Topshop are selling them anyway.. for a hefty £40. But if you've got some old jeans this is obviously free (although, I did have to go out and buy a grater... watch the video if that's confused you ha!).

As you can see, I got a bit crazy at the thigh... that was supposed to just be a light bit of distressing, but apparently my grater was vicious. Oh well, thigh revealage it is. My parents will definitely laugh at these jeans - especially my dad. He has always found distressed jeans hilarious. (I understand their sentiments though. Why would you buy jeans that are ruined?! Especially when you can make them for free ;) eh!)

It's my first go at a DIY vid so apologies that my hair gets in the way at some (vital) points.. oops. If there's anything I forgot to mention or if you have any questions, let me know :) but it's seriosuly quick and easy to do (as you can probably guess, haha!).

UPDATE: OH EM GEE. I'm in the shortlist for Best Thrifty Blog in the Company Style Blogger awards. Woah. If you guys could spare a vote for me (category 9) I'd really be so grateful. You can skip the other categories Mum and Dad (haha). I've placed my votes in all 9 :) Thank you in advance kind'uns <3

  1. Jade & I were thinking about ripping up some old jeans too! I have a pair of Hudson jeans that tore on the knee and I banished them from my jeans wardrobe (but couldn't throw them out). I might find them and hack up the other side...

    "No you don't get to watch me change." - classic! Hahaha.
