Dudes, it’s time to add pockets to your tie. Ladies, it’s time to add a tie or two to your wardrobe. You can see the full tutorial on one page as well as find more fun and easy DIYs here
Step 1: Materials
- small piece of fabric (for the pockets)
- needle and thread
- sewing pins
- snap button
- optional: sewing machine
Step 2: Prepare Your Tie
Use scissors or a seam ripper to unstitch the back of the tie. Our tie faked its fanciness and only had a little piece of silk – the white fabric you see is the fabric that keeps the tie stiff.
Take your pocket fabric and cut a piece that will serve as the iPhone pocket and base pocket layer.
Step 3: Sew the IPhone Pocket
Iron the fabric. Pin it, lay it in the tie to make sure you’re all good. Sew!
Step 4: Create the Card Pocket
Repeat with the next pocket, and use a credit card to measure the size. Sew the card pocket to the iPhone pocket.
Step 5: Attach to Tie
Now, you need to attach it to the tie. Pin it to the tie so that it doesn’t go through the front. Turn the tie inside out and hand sew the pocket to the inside layer of fabric in the tie.
Step 6: Add Button
Lastly, we added a simple snap button to keep the pocket closed.
Step 7: Voila!
Your pocket tie is ready to wear!
