My daughter left her clothes in the dryer…again. As I pulled them out and piled them in her basket, I burst out laughing because I found a pair of green basketball shorts.
These shorts have a story. I purchased them as practice shorts for my son when he played basketball about six years ago. We had a problem with the washer catching our clothes and eating them. The problem was fixed, but not before it ate a few holes in these shorts.
I sewed the pockets shut and used the pocket material to make round patches. I sewed them on using a zigzag stitch and added extra stitching to make each round patch look like a basketball.
My son hated them. He refused to wear them.
But, my daughter thought they were cool! I realized she is still wearing them today.
Pockets are the perfect material to use for patches because they match the rest of the item.
