first DIY: studs







1. Inspiration picture
2. Buy studs/nail heads
3. Trace the cutting line in pencil
4. Cutcutcutcut
5. Product after piercing all the studs through
6. The inside- all the studs bent in.

I still need to put a piece of material over the top so it doesn't scratch my skin from the inside. Pretty proud about my first clothing alteration because I have no sewing skills at all. I was so scared cutting into my Ksubis! But I think I'm going to keep trying to spruce up old things for wear again. I'm no expert but feel free to comment/email me if you have a question about what I did :)

  1. Oh my gosh! I've wanted to try this ever since I saw it on some site. Looks like you did a really good job. I would've been nervous cutting up Ksubis too.

  4. I'm glad you said you were going to put material on the inside. I was thinking, "Man, that's gonna eat your butt cheek!"
    Looks great :)

  7. Wow this looks so professional, I would not have been able to tell that this was a diy. You could sell those in the shops! You must be really neat....I think if I tried mine would be all crooked! Great job! x x x

  47. This is such a cool DIY! I love the idea of how you "pull away the pocket" to find hidden studds- you get to see what those jeans are "really" made of!

  53. oh I'm obsessed with this.

    it is fierce

    as is Diva Davanna

    but that is all she is

    a fierce 10 year old who can walk in 8 inch heels

    but even she isnt as fierce as those pants!
