I was able to sneak in just enough sewing time this weekend to complete these four pairs of shorts for the Hopeful Threads July Boys’ Shorts Sewing project, plus one more pair for Charlie. I am donating four pairs of shorts sewn from my Mud Puddle Splashers pattern in honor of our four boys.
The Monkeys and Puppies are size 3T which is Charlie’s current size.
The Lizards and the Trains are size 6 which is Jamie’s current size.
I made all four pairs with all the optional extras that I included in the pattern, and I added one more thing . . . back pockets! Aren’t they cute? (My husband really likes me to put back pockets on the pants that I make for our boys. He thinks they really make them look finished.) This pocket is quick and easy, and tomorrow, I’ll have the pocket pattern along with a tutorial on how to add one to the shorts that you’re sewing!
How’s your sewing going? If you haven’t already downloaded it, be sure to check out this post for the free Mud Puddle Splashers pattern that I created just for this project: The Mud Puddle Splashers
