Summer shorts - Day 257

I saw these adorable rolled shorts and knew I had to make them.

 Capri's never fit me right. They are always too long and look funky on my short legs. I found a pair that I wasn't in love with and cute them up for this project. I cute them right under my knee cap. Then I rolled them twice and they landed right above my knee cap. I then ironed the heck out of them. The thing about jean material is it can be broken down and made soft by heat, pressure and force. Heat and pressure I have in my iron, but I do not have a mallet (do not use a hammer. It is not the same thing). So I think they turned out really well without the mallet!

Excuse the bad photo. I couldn't find my nice camera:(

Those are adorable. I'm always reluctant wearing shorts that length since I'm paranoid about my knees. You look super cute!
