Pockets for your shorts? Yes, please!

E loves pockets so when I tested Gracious Thread’s  Swim and Surf Shorts, E requested pockets. No problem, I said. And it truly wasn’t a problem!!  (affiliate link)

There are so many ways to do pockets but with the cute fabrics we’ve been using, we wanted to see the pockets! These only add about ten min to the pattern still keeping it a quick sew!

Even Q wanted to get in on the pockets with his shorts!

Next on the list…pockets for Momma!!

We have over 11 pairs of Swim and Surf shorts in our house and more are to come!! I made a pair of swim ones for our vacation in July and they were wonderful!!


I actually liked the board short material so much that I made two, one with the swim suit bottom in it and one without!
