Make it Monday // Floral Shorts DIY

Last week I shared with you a pair of floral pocket shorts & today I am going to share with you the super simple DIY.  As you can tell by the pictures below, this pair of shorts were once covered in clay. So I thought I'd spruce them up for Summer.

Supplies: Pair of shorts, fabric, scissors, pins, needle & thread, and pencil for tracing.

Instructions: Cut out a bit of fabric & lay it on top of your pockets.  Use your fingers to guid your pencil around the outline of your pockets.  Cut this shape out & repeat tracing for the next pocket (just in case they are different!)  Then pin around your pockets, folding in a bit of fabric as you go.  Use your needle & thread to do a little whip stich around it to hold in in place.  Make sure you go all the way around.
There you have it!  There's no easy way for me to show you the shorts with out showing you my behind!  Also, sorry for all the wrinkles in my cardigan! whoops! I loved pairing these with my lace bike shorts.  Looks good!
