I like the decorative pockets on these shorts, and cute tie through the belt loops. The pockets themselves are useful additions to any bag, and the tie becomes the bag's strap. I’m not going to give detailed instructions for creating the bag – others have already produced lovely video clips – but I will point out some aspects of my creation.
Above you can see that I've used a seam ripper to remove the stitching down the centre front and back seams and opened the fabric out.
This shot shows what a mess they look when you turn them inside out!!! See how uneven the hem edges are? don't worry, they get chopped and straightened out.
