DIY Patterned Fabric Shorts. I had fun making these. :)

So I know this was more of a summer trend, and its fall now, but it turned out I needed to get a little more wear out of my shorts. The fashionable rips in these shorts were getting a little too big and I couldn’t use the pocket on one side, so I thought hey, I can fix this! I asked friends on Facebook and Instagram which fabric I should use, and the tribal pattern on won.

Here are some pictures along with how I remade my shorts. Super easy, and maybe you’ll be inspired to DIY/Patch/Snazzed up some short of your own. 😀

Hope y’all had a great weekend!

DIY Patterned Shorts Step 3
Sew along the edges of your pinned fabric until you reach the pocket opening. I thought it was easier to sew that by hand so I wouldn’t accidentally sew it closed. Don’t forget to sew the belt-loop back on.
