From the blogger: "Get ready for summer with these distressed patch denim shorts! These cut-off shorts were inspired by a pair for sale in a department store for about $200. You can make these for a fraction of the price! Start with a pair of shorts (or old jeans) and begin positioning your patches. You can find on-trend patches at the craft store, or you can add some throwback flair with childhood scout patches! Remember to layer a few for extra dimension and visual interest. Then, stitch the patches into place and embellish around them with basic embroidery details like hearts, stars, and dots. These fun and trendy shorts take only an afternoon to complete and can be worn all summer long."

This is such a fun trend that I would die to have. Don't know if there are other patch and embroidery fans out here like me but this is seriously easy to make. This deserves five stars.
