I was inspired last week by a blog from Rantingsofanamateurchef@wordpress.com. He bravely posted a picture of a mistake he made. I have to admit I try some things and they don’t always work!
Here is my most recent failure. I was disgusted with the wrinkled pocket flaps on my husband shorts. It was the only part of the shorts that needed ironing and I don’t particularly enjoy ironing.
So I got out some facing that is used to make fabric stiff on shirt collars.
I cut out pieces to fit under the flap.
I ironed them to the flap.
And thought I would never iron those flaps again.
I was wrong. After one washing the flaps were not only just as wrinkled, but it looked like he had dryer sheets stuck in his pockets. Luckily, I was able to rip them off before he went out the door.
Like I said, DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!!!

I just sew the corners down. Of course I can’t use the pockets but that is okay with me to avoid wrinkled flaps.
What a great idea! On my shorts, I cut the pocket out and sew it shut because I don’t need any extra bulk back there!
