I've been craving a pair of distressed cut off denim shorts for a while now and I finally decided to make my own from an old pair of jeans instead of spending a bunch of money on the new ones.
2. a grater
3. scissors and 4.seam ripper
cut your shorts down to size (you can use a pair of shorts you already have and like the length of as a model or just measure before you cut)
then roll up the bottom part, for a better finish
