What you’ll need

Pencil
Paper
2 brown grocery bags
Jeans
Bleach pen
FOR CASUAL CAPRIS:
Pinking shears
Jeans
Fabric glue (available at fabric stores; we used Fabri-Tac)Washable fabric ribbon
How to make it
For Jazzy Jeans:

First sketch out a fun design on the paper. Next, place the folded bags inside the pant legs to keep the bleach from bleeding through. With the pen, re-create the design on the side of the jeans. Allow the bleach to set for 30 minutes before rinsing with water. (Thanks to FamilyFun reader Kimberly Smith and her daughter, Jordyn, for this fantastic idea!)
For Casual Capris

Cut the jeans to the desired length, then use the glue to attach the ribbon along the outside of the bottoms of the pants. (We recommend Fabri-Tac because it holds up well when washed.) Let the jeans dry for 24 hours before washing them.
