Hello all! Happy Monday to you! Today in the area I live school kiddos are heading back and I'm just here with my yummy coffee being thankful that high school is many years behind me! So this weekend I took some fabric paint to some shorts and ended up with these adorable Leopard Print Shorts. Read more to find out how....

For the supplies you won't need much: a little fabric paint in black, white, and brown. I use the Tulip Soft Fabric paint just because I have found it to be my favorite.

To get the tan color for the base I did have to mix the brown and white together, but the fabric paint mixes nicely.

I started painting the jeans with the tan color one one side of the shorts, you can of course do both if you want I just wanted the one sided look. 

Using the brown I added various spots and dots in no specific pattern.  

Lastly I added the black paint around the spots and mace "O" shapes and "C" shapes around the brown spots and then I added some "V" shapes and black spots to fill in some areas. And that's it! Hope you enjoy making these! xoxo - Hillary
