Do your kids pants do this??
It drives me crazy!!
Me: Yes, crazy!
Me: So what should we do about it, Luke?
Here’s what I did about it…
Sewed them shut!!
I won’t get anymore cute pictures like this…
But he rarely puts his hands or toys in his pockets anyway, so no harm done! And now his pants look like this:
All I did was iron down his pockets flat and then sew along the seam line that was already there.
Left side sewn shut; Right side obviously not sewn shut. You can’t tell, I can’t tell, and the pockets look like they are supposed to (all tucked inside and not poking out!!)
So much better! A solution that will take you 10 minutes tops!
Also, if you use a big enough stich (I used a 5 or a basting stitch size), then it will be really easy to take out later if you decide that you want the pockets to be usable again.
