  1. Pour some white fabric paint out on a piece of scrap paper.
  2. Dip the Q-tip in the fabric paint and then press it down on the jeans wherever you want a polka dot.  The more pressure that you apply, the larger the polka dot will be.  Use the same amount of pressure for equal sized polka dots, or mix it up and make different sized polka dots.
  3. Cover the entire front side of the jeans with polka dots.
  4. Flip the jeans over once the front has dried and repeat the process on the back side.
  5. Allow the back side to dry, and you now have an awesome pair of polka dot jeans!
