12 DIY Cutoff Shorts to Make for Kids

Have you ever tried to find something online and just can't find what you're looking for? That's pretty much how this whole cutoff shorts thing started for me. I wanted to make cutoffs for my kids. I'm cheap and I wanted to utilize the jeans that had holes in the knees. But I wanted to add some fun details, so I turned to the internet for ideas.

I was pretty disappointed. The majority of cutoff short ideas that I found were WAY too short. I want my kids to be kids. I want them to be modest, not models. So that summer, I came up with my own DIY ideas for cutoff shorts.

This post brings all my cutoff shorts ideas into one place. Plus other's I have since found.  I decided to do a roundup of modest kids cutoff shorts in hopes that others can find what I couldn't.
