Distressing the jeans

So from the previous post I've distressed the bleached jeans I created.

Need:
Cheese graters
Scissors or seam ripper

So I put the jeans on to mark out where abouts I want the holes and distressing, after that I took off the jeans, important step! And began with the grater to wear away the fabric, then used the scissor to pull out and clip away any of the fibres.
I want to keep the horizontal fibres and pull out the vertical ones.... If that makes sense.... Like the 4th picture.

Enjoy and happy DIY'n
