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!


  1. What a great idea, they look lovely. And you look amazing, I hope you are feeling well. I'm patching a hole in my bag at the moment, with little 2" hexagon patchwork. I'll let you know how it turns out! CJ xx

  2. How fun? Have they washed up well? I always worry about that.

  3. Cute! Thinking about you and baby girl as we head into September!
