How can I find or make purple and pink striped jeans?

The stripes need to be horizontal, and I have no idea how to do this. If you can tell me where to find some or how to make them, that would be wonderful.

Update:

Think the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. :)

I'll look into the latex paint idea.

    First, I would buy a pair of white denim jeans. You can go to your local TJ Maxx, Target or wherever or you can google them: http://www.google.com/products?q=white%20denim%20j...

    Then, buy some fabric paint at Michaels or your local craft store, or you can google that: http://www.google.com/products?q=fabric+paint&btnG...

    Cut out a piece of paper the thickness of the horizontal stripes you want and pin it to the jeans. Then, paint the jeans with a large paintbrush. You could also use fabric dye: http://www.google.com/products?q=fabric+dye&btnG=S...

    But this could get messy - or you could dye the pants pink first and then just paint purple stripes.

    I think clothing manufacturers weave the fabric from different colors to create stripes, but obviously you can't do that. Painting it with fabric paint would be your next best option.

    Another option would be to find some purple and pink fabric and sew a pair of pants. Try your local Joann's or other fabric store or google it: http://www.google.com/products?q=purple%20pink%20s...

    You can also pick up a pattern at your local fabric store. Ask the clerk for help. http://www.google.com/products?q=pants%20pattern&i...

    This site allows you to design and order your own custom fabric: http://www.spoonflower.com/welcome

    You could also hire a tailor to make the pants from the fabric if you don't want to do it yourself.
