My husband hates shirts without a pocket. so over the years he has accumulated numerous shirts from different events that he's worn once maybe twice... so for my summer project I decided to learn how to insert a "Welt Style" pocket so these like new shirts can get some use. This may not be the "proper" way but it works for me.
(I have views of several shirts I picked the best pictures.)
All the fabric I have used were scrapes from other projects, these fabrics either complimented or were a contrasting fabric.
Fabric for the pocket (needs to be strong enough to hold up to everyday use)
Complimentary fabric for the welt
Paper to make patterns (graph paper would be good)
Sewing machine /threads etc..
Step 1: Some Finished looks
These are examples of some that I have finished. I tried several ways to make them until I decided on the easiest for me to make and that would do the job of "holding glasses, pens etc..." so far these are doing 'the trick".
