I've seen pom pom shorts popping up all over the place recently. They are so cute and add a fun bit of flair to any outfit. I found a pair of elastic waistband shorts at TJ Maxx for $10 and decided to add my own pom pom trim.
Seriously, this project is so easy that it doesn't really warrant any directions except for: 1) go to the craft store and buy pom pom trim and 2) hand sew it on to your shorts.
The helpful tip I do have for the sewing part is to make small stitches on the front. I started the stitch from the underside of the shorts, went through the front of the shorts, and then came back down very close to where I started the stitch. This ensures that you really don't see the stitches on the front of your shorts. I would also recommend just hand stitching the trim on instead of using a machine so that you don't see a lot of the stitch on the shorts.
Choosing a pair of shorts with pattern also helped to hide any stitches, although I'm sure that if you used the right color thread on a solid pair of shorts it would hardly be noticeable. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or send me an e-mail.
This took about an hour to do, and I love how they turned out. I added these shorts to my list of favorite maternity wears.
Have you been making anything fun recently? Anything easy enough that even I could do? Leave a link in the comments, because I'd love to check it out!
