Unlined patch pocket tutorial – how to make the perfect pocket

We are going to be learning how to sew an unlined patch or “applied pockets” as they are professionally known.

A patch pocket, as the name implies, is a separate piece of fabric that is applied to the right side of the fabric.  Done properly it will give your garment a look of professionalism and of course practicality. The patch pocket is also an excellent way to separate your design from the rest.  Have a look at the picture below for just a few examples of patch pockets variations.

In this tutorial, I will be showing you the most basic of the applied pockets.  The following tutorial is for cotton fabric, linen, canvas and denim and a combination of them.  This type of pockets is not for loosely woven fabrics because the pocket will gape at the opening.
