Her requirements were:
- They need to be big enough to hold my phone/money/camera/keys
- They need to be strong enough to hold my phone/money/camera/keys
- They need to be waterproof
- I need them in two weeks
I got around this problem by using freezer bags as waterproofing. I just put the bag between the pocket and the lining and sewed it up. They're not 100% waterproof because when sewing through the plastic the needle would make holes in it, but that's close enough.
I used purple corduroy for the main pockets, freezer bags for the interfacing and purple and white gingham for the lining.
I got a message from her yesterday saying "Hello Hun,Just wanted to say a quick huge 'THANK YOU' for my pockets I love them :D ur very talented, there perfect for what i need."
I'm very happy with how they turned out.
