This week I sewed my very first welt zipper pocket and it turned out perfectly! I was so satisfied with my results and I give credit to two great video tutorials. This one by Professor Pincushion, and this one by Gertie. Watch them both if you want to give it a try and between the two of them you'll have enough information to make solid pockets that look fantastic on the first try.
I wanted a pocket in this darling planner/organizer cover. I've been making oodles of these (for my etsy shop) and I wanted to step it up to make it a little smarter.
The outcome was nice and straight. There are a couple of imperfections but they are so small that I'm the only one who knows where they are. And I'm fine with that.
My pocket is about 4 inches deep and will hold a great amount of goodies including my phone if I want to use this organizer as an impromptu handbag.
It's got it all and I learned a new skill I had avoided for a long time. So if you're looking for a new sewing skill to learn I highly recommend tackling the welt zipper pocket. You'll be glad you did. Do it!
