Animal prints, especially leopard are in.
Actually they never went away….
Of course leopard prints have been big in Africa and Southeast Asia. The big cats there have been wearing them for a rather long time. Loooong time. Generations even.
So, in prep for how “Askirtaweek does LEOPARD”, I decided to upcycle a pair of jeans (rescuing them from a life of despair).
Here’s how I did it.
I cut off a couple inches and no, I am not bow legged… Note the bleach spots. I Strategically placed some spots exactly over the bleach spots. So clever. My advanced education at work. Thanks Dad, and me.
My favorite fabric paint, Lumiere. I get it at Dharma Trading. Love it. Sometimes I leave it on my nails so it looks like I had a manicure.
I use it like Paula Deen uses BUTTER.
I like to put a second color on, in a kindergartener, nontalented smoosh, here and there. This is a reddish brown. Gives a little more depth to the spots.
