HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN CROSS PATTERN CUT-OFF JEAN SHORTS
What you need
- Old denim jeans or shorts
- scissors
- paper
- clear plastic contact
- bleach

Tutorial
1/ measure & cut your back jean pocket with a piece of paper. Fold in half and cut your cross out. You could do a normal cross or a inverted cross,  whichever you prefer.
2/ Place your paper template over some plastic clear book cover contact and trace out the cross and pocket shape. Cut 2 templates remembering to flip the paper so it fits both pockets.
3/ cut each cross out.
4/ peel and stick the plastic down on each pocket, you can use the marker marks to get even and center.
5/ take shorts outside and lay flat. Spray with pure bleach in the cross cut-out. Do not spray too much otherwise the bleach could bleed under the plastic. You could even sponge the bleach on if you like.
6/ leave to let bleach work its magic. You must check regularly until you get the desired result. All denim takes different amount of time to lighten so just keep checking.
7/ peel off plastic and wash.

I think for a fun DIY fashion experiment these turned out well. They would have looked better if cross was inverted and lines thinner, but you live and you learn lol

I am working on a different method on a pair of jeans, if I can get them finished I will post tomorrow :)
