+ boys week
equals... unisex overalls
That's how this math teacher solved the problem of what to make during the "boys week" challenge for Project Run and Play.

I use this trick to make my rounded edge pockets:
1. Cut out the desired pocket and a lightweight facing for the pocket.
2. Sew around the pocket using your desired seam allowance.
3. Cut a slit in the center of the pocket facing, and turn the pocket right side out. Trim, clip the seam allowance, and press with an iron.
4. Now the trick... use stitch witchery to seal the hole closed by applying heat. Now the pocket is ready to be sewn on your garment.

Comfy, able to be worn by a girl or a boy, and cozy was the big idea behind the whole outfit.
|"They are comfy!"|
