Mending: canvas shorts

My old duck/canvas shorts are separating at the leg.  Unraveling and the bottom line has lost a good chunk of material:

I found a light-colored pair of scrubs at the goodwill; yellow tags were half off. So I looked through the “generously proportioned” section until I found the biggest pair for the cheapest. More material, ya know. 🙂

I used an existing hemmed section of the scrubs to rebuild/reinforce the bottom of the shorts. It looked like this on the inside:

The result is good enough for my purposes:
