From Old Shorts to Belt Pouch

I was in need of a birthday present. So I gathered the supplies that you can see in the picture above.

While sewing, it occurred to me that the navy twill tape I firstly chose was way too dark. Hmmm. It’s the only one I had in my supplies. Then, my eyes fell on the remaining pieces of the shorts. There, for my convenience, was finished leg bottoms, with a similar width. I cut alongside the stitches. It could not be any more perfect.

I even used a piece of velcro that was on the pockets of the darker short, in the same dark beige/brown color. It was sewn at the top of the main pocket.

To make this pouch, I used the tutorial available on sew4home.com, called Clip on or Slip on Belt Pouch. The zipper may not be at exactly the same place and angle as for the tutorial, because I did not print the pattern. I just eyeballed the position of the zipper.
