Fish Pocket Cargo Pants

It's time to send the September package to our grandchildren Evie and Canaan who live in England with their dad and mom (who happens to be Jessica of Sunnystitching ).  I made a pillowcase for Evie that I mentioned in my most recent here to see it; it turned out really pretty.

Of course, I also wanted to make something for Canaan and decided to make another pair of cargo pants using the same pattern from the Remade Pants and Train TShirt previously posted.

I had some leftover lightweight cotton denim fabric that I had previously purchased from JoAnn's Fabrics. However, I wanted to use a colorful print for the pockets this time and went to JoAnn's with a friend Liz.  She suggested the cute fish fabric that I used....she is really good at choosing fabrics.

The pattern is Simplicity 3856, a very versatile pattern. Canaan wears the size 3.
The cargo pants are so easy to make!

This is the "side" view of one of the legs where the pocket is sewed.

The finished Fish Pocket Cargo Pants!

Canaan, Papa wants to take you fishing when you come in December.
Maybe you can wear your "Fish Pocket Cargo Pants"
We love you, Nanny and Papa
