Introduction: White T-Shirt With Hoodie Pocket Mod

Picture of White T-Shirt With Hoodie Pocket Mod

You can buy a T-Shirt with a pocket on the chest but you never see one with a hoodie style pocket. I thought I'd change that and make one. If someone made an 'ible similar to this, please let me know. Otherwise...

Materials:
-T-Shirt
-Fabric for pocket
-Sewing Machine
-Scissors, pins, etc

Cost:      High: $10
               Low: $0

Time:      High: 30 mins
               Low: 15 mins

Step 1: Cut Out and Reinforce Pocket

Cut out desired shape of the pocket. I reinforced the parts where you're hands go in just by folding and sewing.

Pic #1: Traced the outline of a pocket on my hoodie

Pic #2: Pocket cut out with seam allowance, sewed the diagonals

Pic #3: Diagonals sewn, bottom, side, top are left to sew onto the shirt

Step 2: Sew on Pocket

The top and sides are sewn from the top(sorry I don't know the right terminology), the bottom sewn inside out(not showing the thread)

Pic #1: Centered the pocket, sort of pinned it, then sewed

Pic #2: Bottom sewn

Pic #3: Sides sewn

Then I folded the top, and sewed 

Step 3: Finished

Now you have a snazzy white T-Shirt thats still as casual as a white T-Shirt, only now, with more style. And you have another place to hold very light objects.

This is really cool. I love the idea of tshirt mods because they are usually cheap and you don't feel bad if you mess it up. A great way to learn to sew and also express yourself.

What a FANTASTIC idea!!!

I hope you don't mind if I make one of these for my daughter.

She's always got her hands in her hoodie pockets, just recently she said that she wished that some of her shirts had a hoodie pocket in the front.

What a Wonderful Idea!

Now I don't have to come up with a way to make it on my own.

Of course my "ONLY CHILD-Slightly Spoiled" daughter won't be happy until it's dyed the color she wants...that part, thankfully, I'm good at and can do myself.

Thanks So Very Much For Sharing this wonderful Idea!
