I will explain how to make 2 types of pockets.
#1-SINGLE PADDED POCKETS FOR GADGETS
Now we all carry gadgets right??????
What would a girl do without her i-phone,blackberry,kindle etc etc ..................
So I use batting to add a little bit of padding.
1 piece batting -6.5" by 6".
Now stack the pocket fabric right side together & then the batting.(don't put the batting in between the 2 fabric pieces....................after sewing it you will have to grab your seam reaper!!!!!!! yup,been there done that;)
Now sew the 3 layers from 3 sides.
Now make the pleats same as before & sew them.Make sure there is a gap of 2 cm between the 2 pleats.Place this on the lining & remember to keep the edges straight & sew on all three sides.Lastly sew carefully from the 2cm gap between the pleats to create the compartments.
This is what you get finally.Isn't it soooooooo much better than regular pockets????????
If you make this kind of pockets please link it back here:)
And if you have a flickr account post the pics in my flickr group
Hope you enjoy your big roomy pockets:)
