I have yet another pair of treasure pockets to show! When I made the last pair of treasure pocket shorts, I had planned on using this pocket fabric with those shorts, but I didn’t like how they coordinated once I had them cut out so I stashed away these pockets until I could find some linen fabric I liked. I picked up some linen this past weekend and here are the resulting shorts. I love how lightweight and airy this linen fabric is! The pocket fabric is an organic cotton- Cloud 9 I believe- that I picked up at Whipstitch when I was in Atlanta this spring. I only bought a fat quarter because the organics are so expensive, but I love how even a scrap can be used as a fun accent in this pants pattern.
These are my favorite treasure pockets to date! Every time I make this pattern, I improve my sewing a bit and understand the instructions better 🙂 Except for cutting the pants off 3 inches below the crotch seam (to turn them into shorts), I pretty much followed the instructions word for word.
Note what a helpful little gardener I have 🙂
Very nice! Love your fabric combo!! Which size pattern did you use?
Thanks! I used the 18 month size which is a little big on my 13 month old but since I use cloth diapers which make his bum bigger, they manage to stay up:).
So cute! I’m enjoying your quilt blocks so much in our class that I had to come check out your blog – glad to see I’m not the only one who can’t stop making treasure pocket pants!
Thanks for stopping by:) oh I’m totally addicted to the treasure pockets. They’re just so cute!
