An Attempt Enough to Distress

I recently tried ripping and distressing my jeans. I just used an old pair of jeans and an x-acto knife. I started out by trying to fray the denim. It took a while since I was trying to go for a more frayed look and since I was still experimenting... Unfortunately it didn't really work out... and now I just have some messy holes in my jeans. It's apparent that I'm going to need to work on this skill. Hopefully, one day in the near future I will master it! But for now, I'm just going to have to deal with some messy holes in my jeans.
Here are the distressing photos:

No, that's so cool! How long did it take you to do that? I agree that the holes are a little big, but the jeans look like they came like that. Post more pictures!

I have a friend who has a friend who cut their jeans with an Xacto knife in my friend's room! But now my friend's room smells like a textile mill and her friend kept saying, "Now I know how those 'mill girls' felt!"

I just loooove this blog - keep up the good work!!
