Here's our Friday Sewing Lesson with Miss E and Me.
Here is an easy way for a beginner sewer to make patch pockets.
|The ruler is in the photo to show you that the first pocket is laying on top of the fabric.|
Sew all around the pocket using a 1/4 inch seam.
3. Cut a small slit in the lining fabric only.
4. Turn the pocket gently right side out through the slit. Press the pocket. Next get out some Wonder Under.
5. Place the Wonder Under inside the pocket through the slit. Make sure the slit edges are close together, and then iron to melt the Wonder Under and seam the slit closed.
6. Topstitch any decorative stitching on the pocket, and then pin to garment. Sew around 3 edges of the pocket, back-stitching at the beginning and end of the pocket.
