Of course, I decided to begin this at around midnight (I always seem to be most inspired when I'm meant to be sleeping) so the photos are pretty terrible quality. Please bear with me!
what you need
a pair of shorts
a small square of patterned fabric
thread and needle OR a sewing machine with a zigzag stitch
what you do
1. Cut out two shapes (I did love hearts, of course) from your patterned fabric. Use a stencil like I did, or fold the fabric over itself and cut the shapes out together in order to get the exact same shape for both sides.
2. Once cut out, place the shapes on your shorts and pin them on.
3. Use a zigzag stitch on your sewing machine
or, you could hand-sew them as well! Sew onto the edges of the shape, all the way around. (and make sure you are not also sewing the front and back of the shorts together!)
4. Wear your new (updated) shorts and be super proud!

I will be back with some more do-it-yourself tutorials soon! I have a whole list of ideas that I've been saving up for the holidays, so I'm really excited to get started on them all!
