You can give an inexpensive pair of jeans shorts a designer look by adding some studded leather pockets. Pattie Wilkinson shares a tutorial over at I Love To Create showing how. She makes it a n0-sew project by using fabric glue to attach the pieces. I suppose you could you sew the leather panels if you wanted to, though doing that would involve removing the pockets from the shorts and resewing them after you stitch down the leather pieces. Get her no-sew tute over at I Love To Create.
