Do you want to make a pair of shorts that are a little different then all the other ones you made than this is the pattern for you. These cargo shorts have a pocket large enough to put some great big things in them or even a lot of sea shells. I can see these shorts being a hit with any little boy and not hard to make either. You can also use a large sleeve off an old shirt to make the pockets or some scrap fabric. Make out of a light fabric for some beach shorts and keep your child cool. Nice tutorial.
