Turning Pants Into Cargo Shorts

If I get a pair of pants and convert them into cutoff shorts, can I use the extra material that I cut off to make cargo pockets?

Sure I dont see why not,just copy a pair of cargos to get the idea on placement and size and on how big the pockets should be. You could even follow a picture from a catalog or web page. Happy sewing
