Kid Shorts With Pockets


Some go back-to-school shopping. Me?  I go back-to-school sewing. There’s nothing like my kids outgrowing their clothes to motivate me back on my sewing machine again. I found this pattern on one of my fave blogs of all time, Dana Made It. I started a few days ago and was able to finish both shorts today while my daughter napped an amazing 3 hours! I was beyond thrilled. These days, I love projects that take less than a week.

If your kids are anything like mine, they love to collect – everything, especially rocks. These pockets are great for just that.

Say “cheese” if you love pockets!


Hope this inspires you to get back on your sewing machine to make something fun!

  1. Mary you really did a great job. They’re so adorable with all the details of zoeys little pockets. Hope you didn’t burn your little finger tips to much. I see and I know you put alot of thought into making them. Great job.
    I got it from my mother, she sewed most of our school clothes.
