D.I.Y. Flag shorts

I have always wanted to make some flag shorts. When I found some American flag bandana, I was very excited! I found these at a local flea market a few weeks ago. I am sure you can find some American flag bandana or fabric at your local fabric store.(:

supplies you will need:
1. American flag bandana
2. scissors 
3. needle and thread  
4. a pair of shorts
5. tailor's soft crayon
6. pins

 Sorry I did not take step by step photos, but I will explain how to make these shorts. First off, I can not take all the credit in making these shorts. My mom helped out a lot because I was hesitant on how to start, but it is quite simply when you get started.(: 

1. first cut the whole navy with star section
2. place it on the left side of your shorts and with a tailor's soft crayon mark the outline of your shorts
-you should give yourself extra fabric, mark it a few centimeter away from the exact fit
3. cut the fabric ... place it on the shorts.... and with some pins, pin it in place
4. remember to fold in the extra fabric and begin to sew
do the same for the striped side

ignore the crazy background haha

&& HAPPY 4th OF JULY!(:
