how to sew a welt pocket with flap: flap


here is part3 for the welt pockets, if you do want to do welt pockets without flap jump over the next few steps. You can  find the first parts here: part1, part2.

DSCF5599now I pinned the 2 flap parts together

DSCF5600but made the lining part a little smaller, by doing more seam allowance on this part


DSCF5604and cut the seam allowance at the corners

DSCF5611now turned right side out

DSCF5613and ironed, because I made the lining a tiny bit smaller, it does not show on the pink side, I know its not totally even out on both corners, but since it was just a piece for showing you, I let it slide

DSCF5614now I made sure, the open edge is really parallel to the other side, and cut it a little where it wasn’t

DSCF5615now I placed the flap in the pocket

DSCF5616DSCF5617and pinned it to the seam allowance of the upper strip (light blue)

DSCF5618DSCF5619and sewed, close to the original seam

DSCF5620now I put the flap inside

DSCF5621DSCF5622and sewed the pocket together, this is the part where you need to get back in if you want to do the pocket without a flap

DSCF5623now fold the side over right where the pocket ends

DSCF5624and sew the triangle to the strips

DSCF5625did so on both sides, remember to fold the flap up, so you don’t get stitches in it, like I did 😉

Later today I upload the next steps, so stay tuned. I hope this is helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions about it so far. Or requests for other pockets, collars or such.

keep sewing and smiling
