My neighbor knows I love pockets, so when her son outgrew his shorts I got them. I deconstructed the shorts in part and moved the larger pockets. This allowed me to keep all the pockets in use.
I used a “new to me” product called InnerFuse to stiffen the purse, giving it shape and hopefully making it more durable. The purse has a zipper opening and is lined.
I gave the shorts back to my friend/neighbor. She loves it.
