How To Make Frayed Jeans While You’re “Staying At Home”

If you’re anything like me, you hate to part with a pair of designer denim jeans. Yesterday I cleaned out my closet and realized I hadn’t worn one of my favorite, most slim-fitting pairs of Seven for All-Mankind jeans. I immediately got out my fraying tools and in just minutes I made my own frayed jeans.

Here is how to make frayed jeans:

First, you’ll need:

  • a pair of scissors
  • chalk
  • a pair of tweezers
  • a pair of jeans

1. With a pair of scissors and tweezers in hand, I first cut about 3″ of denim off the length of the jeans.

2. Next, I just began pulling loose threads.

Gratefully, I rescued these Seven for All Mankind Jeans from my beloved eBay Heaven. I apologize in advance to my eBay store followers. Plus, I relieved sooo much stress!!!!! Next time I want to relieve more stress, I’ll definitely go digging for my next pair of favorite fitting jeans.

I think even Bentley, my little Traveling Poodle approved.

Christi Tasker
Christi Tasker For more than 10 years, Christi Tasker was a nationally acclaimed award-winning retailer and interior designer. While she treasured and nurtured her gift boutique and interior design company, she ultimately discovered her true passion – MARKETING and BRANDING! With an eye for detail that only comes from a skilled and experienced designer, Christi learned the secrets to creating a clear, concise brand – one both unmistakable and unforgettable − that would stand out from the crowd. The interest in marketing and branding for businesses actually had its beginning in her family. As did many devoted moms, Christi shadowed her then eleven-year-old daughter, Macy, whenever she ventured online. On one particular day, Christi had an epiphany as she watched Macy scour MySpace for any news in the virtual world of “Webkinz.” Christi placed an order for those lovable furry friends, with their special codes for use with online games, and when they arrived, she shared the news on MySpace, not knowing at the time that she had crafted her first social media campaign. When the college gates went down on Facebook, Christi immediately became one of the first non-college friends of Facebook. And more than just a casual user, she quickly discovered a side of Facebook that only programmers knew about – The Facebook Developer − full of options and tools to help companies better use the web. Christi quickly recognized that marketers either needed to be formally educated about social media or needed a partner to manage their sites. She launched a social media marketing company, which today provides social media branding, strategy, monitoring and training worldwide. Before long, she realized her ability to keep up with her many social media accounts was hampered by the lack of a suitable tool to keep everything in one place. Christi decided the best way to do a job properly was to “do it yourself” and developed PuTTin’ OuT (Socially Accepted) a set of tools to moderate, manage, create, schedule, and publish content, and automatically engage people, all in a single package. In early 2009, Christi began traveling nationally as a social media expert speaker for various brands and businesses, and today is a sought-after social media keynote speaker at the foremost conferences worldwide. she also appears on NBC as a social media advisor/expert.
