DIY lab: leopardizing your jeans

Ok, now you know i love the leopard print. While you’re still searching for the perfect pair of jeans in shops why don’t give a twist to your ordinary denim?
I did. What do you think of the result?
All you need is a pair of jeans of course, a t-shirt marker and your iron.The t-shirt marker is a permanent marker that you can use on fabric (mainly cotton fabric but on other types works well too). When the ink dries you have to fix it on fabric with your iron at medium heat.

Decide where to draw the leopard print. I’ve decided to decor only some part of the jeans. My drawing goes up till the knee and then on one side goes on the thigh, i put some spots around too.

If you observe the leopard spots someones are closed others are open.
To draw the leopard spots you can draw a c and make it fuller in some parts like this.

Let the ink dry.
Take your iron regulated at medium heat and press it on the jeans holding it on the drawing to fix it on the fabric.
If you’re afraid to ruin your jeans you can put between them and the iron a square of oven paper.
After all this is done you can wear your jeans and wash it till 60° (read the marker instructions).
