DIY Animal Print

Sunday, October 14, 2012
Recently, I have been itching to buy some of those animal print jeans that have been trolling around here on all the trends must have list.  I have a strict trending list rule......trend budget is $25 or less.  For most curvy girls, the trending items cost a little more. Here are some of my favorites.
Target's Pure Energy Brand- Really tight in my rolling hills areas aka thighs, but very cute for  $29.99.   Here's the Link

Torrid's Indigo Leopard Sophia's- Love the brand original price $64.99 on sale right now for $39.99.  Here's the Link

Just came across these from Deb's shop- I'm not sure about these, but they are at a good price- $28.00.  Hers's the Link

I absolutely love Not Your Daughter Jeans but the  price can really  be a bit much for someone who rarely wears jeans like me. The Sheri Skinny in Cheetah print at $130.00. Here's the Link

Now being a single girl on a budget, I find my deals at most sales, thrift stores and online shops.  I decided to take matters into my own hands, so to say and you can too, here is how.

Your supplies are pretty cheap: All items can be found at your favorite craft store. 
  • Stencil Paper-. A heavy poly-coated paper that cuts easily and features excellent resistance to penetration of oil, dyes and water based paints and inks.
  • Fabric Paint
  • Hobby Knife or X-acto 
  • Pointy Scissors
  • Tape
  • Stencil Brushes- I used old paint brushes and cut them down to 2 inches.
  • Bowl for paint
  • A pair of jeans

Here are you steps:

  • Pick your image-I started this project by picking a pattern that I loved from a image search from the web. I didn't want to look like something from big cat country, so I pick a nice pattern that would be easy to trace and not take up too much time.  Remember the smaller the pattern, the more time it takes to trace and cut. 
  • Print the image to a size you like and Trace it on the Stencil paper with a pen, so you can cut the tract out with the razor, x-acto knife or weapon of choice.
  • Take the Stencil template and tape firmly in place on the jeans.
  • Now the fun part.  With your paint in a bowl, dip the brush in the paint the lightly dab the paint on the jeans.  Cover the stencil with just one coat only.
  • Now remove stencil and do the step above until you have covered your jeans completely.

Keep a cup of water on hand to dip brush in.
Keep paint light so it will dry faster and make it easier to finish.

Now time for the big reveal.....drum roll please!!

This look was a cue from one of my favorite bloggers Stylechic360.   I love her looks, they are so chic.  
The jacket is a gifted from my aunt various collection of 70's. 80's fabulous.  I love that baby hoarder.  The shirt is from Belk's Sunny Leigh Women collection. 

Everytime I look at my thighs all I can hear is Jill Scott's Rolling

I was being funky so Patent Red wedges from  Nine West

The second look - Thrifted Pink Jacket, I feel like a Pink Lady and in honor of Breast Cancer  awareness this was perfect

Sheer black tie top from Target circa 2007

NOW I LOVE LOVE MY SOFFT PATENT MARY longer available.  I can't skip on cost with the feet.  Sofft Shoes. Please disregard my cane leg.

Remember Have Fun and I would love to hear from you and see your creations!
