Two tutes: cut-off shorts with different trims

You can turn a drawer full of these:

The original idea came from these cute-patooty ribbon capris at Make It and Love It. So by combining this tutorial from Creative Little Daisy, and making my own extra wide bias tape (for the khaki pair), with this tutorial from Angry Chicken, how to sew bias tape without swearing...I ended up with the other two pairs of shorts. The middle pair with the pink trim is just grosgrain ribbon folded in half and sewed on there. Hiding the rough edges on the end was kind of tricky for a beginner like me. But if I figured it out...so can you!!
