Nothing can made me happier than getting good stuff on sale but some times I buy stuff and realize after I brought exact same thing again just because it’s at clearance .It happened last week when I scored exactly same pair of jeans at 70% off for my daughter Aleeza . I couldn’t resist to leave it at that clearance price..lol.
I wanted to change the shade at least, so she will enjoy two different pants …Bleached jeans are hot trend and quite costly as compare to normal jeans /denim. . ..I had fabric dye in my mind as back up plan if bleaching technique got failed (gonna dye something soon) BUT I got great result and thought to share this easy DIY with you guys with affordable method or should I say cheapest.
I used her older one to try on this method. You can also use your older or most hated one just in case you have a failure… (I am keeping my self on safer side…😉)
Wear your gloves since the bleach has harsh chemicals that will damage your skin and try to do in ventilated area.Place the pants in a plastic bucket or basin filled with a gallon of warm water and a 1/2 cup of bleach.
If your jeans is ripped (like mine) try not to do that part it will damaged the denim and results will be awful.
I only wanted lower portion down the knees to be bleached,I folded the jeans and take the upper portion out and dipped the desire part for about 45 mins than dipped the 1 inch more down to the bleach since I wanted to give a ombre. If you want lighter shade leave it for another half an hour but dont extend time time more than 2 hours it will damage the fiber and life span.
When you are done with your desire shade, dip it in Apple Cider vinegar or white vinegar to stop the bleaching process.It not only stops but also fixes the bleaching dye.Dip the jeans for 5 mins than wash it in your washer at normal setting with out ” detergent”.Run the whole cycle.
I air-dried in my back yard and iron it as usual…just follow the instructions and you will get your very own desired shade…….If you have an old pair of jeans try it,you will love it….your very own trendy jeans ready to wear…Let me know If you experiment something that worth sharing. ..!

what you guys are doing this week.Tell me about yours?
I am wondering where did this long awaited summer go but it was most amazing and busiest summer ever for sure Allhumdillah. Kids are back to school and Hopefully I am back on my blog regularly as well.I have so many projects that should be featured but also many lined up to be completed as well.
here I am sharing one of the simplest,cutest DIY I have ever made,literally took mins .
You can either make it for any occasion, wrap it and give anyone as a gift or keep it home like me.
All you need
A cup with saucer (I got a little vintage small-sized )
Candle wax and Thread ( from craft store)
E-6000 or any strong clear glue.
Fragrance oil of your choice(mine is Tobacco Flower home fragrance)
First attach the cup and saucer with Glue ,leave it for an hour so it attached together.Now carefully wrap the wax cord around a pen/stick like the pic.Rub or pour few drops of home fragrance oil to the inner surface of the cup.
Melt the wax in any(old) pan over a low flame and pour the melted wax into the cup.Leave it for 1 hour or so,let it settled.Now unwrapped the cord and cut it in desire size.
Lighten it up and enjoy it at your candle light dinner.
