How To Draw The Classic Blue Jeans For Kids (Easy Cartoon Tutorials)

Almost every American has at least one pair of blue jeans in their closet. Jeans in a way represent what America (and Americans in general) mean to me: it’s rugged, hearty, and strong in dexterity. Jeans were invented and then became popular because they could get dirty, torn, or stained, etc. yet still you’d wear them with pride. A good quality pair of jeans is certainly a fashion icon for a reason. So today we’re going to draw this American icon in our simple 8 step tutorial.

🖍️ Tools For Success

🎨 Parents: The only tools you need to use these how-to-draw tutorials are: an eraser, a pencil, and a piece of paper. But – if you have them around – a sketching pencil makes for fainter and softer lines that help kids build fine motor accuracy. I also recommend going over the sketch pencil with a black outline marker when you’re done for a neater finish. Lastly, erase the pencil marks before adding color.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Draw a Jeans

  1. First, in the middle of your paper, draw an oval with a small space area. This oval will look like a stretched-one, making a bigger or smaller shape depending on how you like the jeans’ waist to appear. 
  2. Next, connect a vertical line on each side of the oval – the longer, the better. This will become the leg seams.
  3. At the end of each line, draw short horizontal lines, then continue the lines vertically upwards, connecting them. 
  4. Then, draw a slightly curved line parallel to the waistline and another two short parallel lines on the hem area.
  5. After that, let’s add the zipper area by drawing a rectangular shape between the waistline and crotch area. 
  6. Draw two curved lines on each side of the jeans, starting from the waistline to the pants’ side.
  7. Finally, draw two vertical lines on each side of the jeans from the pockets’ ends to the pant’s hems. 
  8. I know we all love classic denim jeans so let’s hit it with light blue in front and dark blue in the side pockets and the waist!
