$4 Mint Skinnies

I started with $1 white jeans from the thrift store.  The fabric dye was only $3 at Hobby Lobby.

Filled up my pretty bucket with steamy water...

Stirred and stirred and stirred for 15 minutes (because I wanted them light-colored)


And they're not as minty and light as I'd like them to be, but they'll do.  I washed them in hot water but they still didn't fade much.

  1. They look great! If you put a capful of bleach into a big bucket of hot water and dip the jeans in so they get evenly soaked and then immediately throw them into the wash, I think it should fade them up a little bit without making them completely white.
