TOOLS & MATERIALS: shorts with slant side pockets, metal buttons, ruler or measuring tape, straight pins, needle + thread, scissors
INSTRUCTIONS: Step 1: Using ruler or measuring tape, determine placement of buttons on first pocket. (We made sure to leave plenty of clearance from waistband and pocket edge. We then evenly spaced buttons from there.) Mark with pins. Step 2: Repeat on other side, making sure sides match. Step 3: Sew buttons to each pocket with needle and thread. Hand wash.
