|Now lets make some front pockets shall we? They are really pretty easy to do.|
First grab your front piece and along the straight side cut your pocket shape. However deep or large as you want really.
|Sew one front and one back leg right sides together along the curved edge. From the crotch down the leg.|
|Lay that seam flat and double stitch a top stitch. (like all jeans have) If you have a double needle go for it, I don't so I just stitched one line and then followed that line to stitch a second, as you can see it got a little curvy...|
|Next sew up the other side of the leg.|
You can do these steps with both legs.
|Next let's make the mini pocket. |
1.Take that small cut out piece and turn under the top edge and stitch it in place.
2. Fold under the edges and pin it to the larger pocket piece matching up the curved edge. Sew in place.
|Next with your pocket flipped on the inside of the pants. lay it all flat and finish sewing the front leg to the back leg, along the pocket.|
|Next, I had cut out the back pockets from the pants I used and just made it an appropriate size for the smaller pants. I turned under the top edge, and then folded all the edges under and sewed them in place on the read of the pant.|
|Next with right sides together which means one pant leg will be inside out and one will not put the one that is not inside the one that is inside out, and sew along the "u" shape, connecting the two pieces.|
|You should have something that looks like pants at this point. Now I topstitched the seam we just sewed, since most jeans have that topstitched, but it was a little tricky to maneuver and not necessary if you would rather skip it.|
|Now your little one has some stylish new jeans to wear around.|
|And since they were made from old jeans she was run around and be wild since she is not destroying a pair of 30 dollar jeans.|
|She only looks like she is :)|
