'Merica

I've recently come across the coolest pair of shorts bearing a not so cool price tag. They retailed for about $198 and I knew that I could make them myself. I ran out to Goodwill, picked up some high waist denim jeans, and began to cut and destroy. I then purchased a flag bandana because obviously no one can cut a real flag, shame on you if you thought I did so! Sewed it on by hand and voila! Overall, these cost me a total of $8 and came out pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Definitely a fun DIY project! -Made in America.
