DIY College Athletic Shorts

Being an Oregon State University (OSU) grad I love to wear beaver gear but let's face it college gear can be expensive!  I made these OSU themed shorts the other day to wear when I go on a run or to Zumba.  They were pretty easy to make and I love the faded look of the letters. 

Step-By-Step How To:
  1. Things you will need:
    • Jersey Shorts in the color of your choice
    • Chalk
    • Clorox Bleach Pen
    • Plastic Bag or Plastic Cutting Board
  2. Place a bag or the cutting board underneath the area you plan to apply the bleach
  3. With the chalk draw your university logo on the shorts
  4. Go over the logo with the bleach pen and let dry for 2-3 minutes
  5. Wash off the bleach, next wash the shorts in washing machine and dry
  6. If the design is not dark enough repeat steps 4-5 
We've had such hot weather here in the PNW I'm kinda looking forward to fall >.<

How is the weather where you live?
