Simple Ribbon Bows - Cut off Jean Shorts Series

Today I'm finally back with more in my Cut Off Jean Shorts Series. Today's pair of shorts were definitely the easiest, but so darn cute! The simple ribbon bows add a touch of cuteness with very little work.

Cut off the shorts at the length you desire. I try for 1-2 inches above the knee for my kids. Then stick them through the washer and dryer. They will continue to fray each time they are washed. You will need to cut off the long strings.

For the bows simply tie a bow with ribbon. Play around with it to get it to look how you want it. Cut the excess ribbon. I used a lighter to melt the ends of the ribbon so they wouldn't fray. Then just grab a needle and thread and sew it in place. I used three stitches for each bow.

I've washed them 3 times since adding the bows and so far they've held up perfectly.
