You can use any denim you'd like. For an example, I used shorts.
Take your scissors and cut two lines. Make sure you leave a good amount of space between the lines as shown above.
Start filing the cuts on the denim with your nail filer. File top and bottom.
Now take your tweezers and pull off a string from the cut. It'll take a few tries but once you get one, they'll all be easy to come off. Tip: start in the center.
Pulling a few denim strings will look like this.
TA-DA! Let's add a few more.
Do the same technique again. It's better to continue on to where you started off.
You're doing it right if you have a mess like this, haha.
Look how stringy it is!
I kept adding more until I reached a desirable amount of distress.
Don't forget to file the area shown above!
Even the little corners!
End result. Stringy distressed denim! Once you're completed don't forget to wash them. Washing them adds more fringe. Hope you enjoyed my guide! :)
