I’d been dreaming up this idea in my head for a while after buying these cute red pants for $1 at a rummage sale. I didn’t realize when I bought them that they didn’t have pockets in the back. I thought it looked kind of silly and came up with a quick fix. Hello Kitty pockets! Natalie is in love with pockets of course, what 3 year old isn’t? Since I grew up with Hello Kitty I couldn’t resist.
To make the pocket I traced a simple image of Hello Kitty to make the pattern. I used white linen (two layers) and lined the pocket with red fabric with tiny red hearts. I embroidered the face on the kitty and added the bow by using some ribbon. Then I stitched the whole thing on the pants, a little tricky, but not too bad.
