Lined Patch Pocket

The next thing that we created was a lined patch pocket.  I liked starting with this pocket as it showed me how pockets are basically put together and allowed me to get the hang of it before trying the more difficult designs.

Here are the steps:

Sew the lining and the shell together, right side to right side, using 1.5cm seam allowance.  Making sure to leave a gap at the bottom so you are able to turn it the right way round.

Reduce bulk leaving the top and curving the edges in near the gap you have left.

Bag out the pocket through the gap you left and press.

 Sew it to your base (where ever you might like the pocket) as close to the edge as possible, create a triangle at the top.  (Don't forget to leave the top edge open so you can put your hand in)
