DIY Pocket T-Shirt April 27 2017, 0 Comments

We hate waste here at VSM, so we keep all of our scrap fabrics to turn into our much loved pocket shirts. They make great gifts and are a perfect addition to any wardrobe! They're really fun and easy to make by following our step by step guide...

STEP 1

Take a piece of card and cut a square approx 4" wide by 5" high. Snip off the bottom side corners to give that 'pocket shape'.

STEP 2

Place your cardboard guide on the reverse of your fabric and cut around with an inch to spare all around. (keep the printed side of the fabric face down!)

STEP 3 

With a warm iron, carefully fold down the fabric over your cardboard guide and press with the iron. Do this for all sides.

STEP 4

Carefully unwrap the cardboard guide from the fabric, turn over and press the finished pocket square with the iron.

STEP 5

Take your tshirt and place on a flat surface. Carefully position your pocket onto the tshirt. Pin in place.

STEP 6

Sew in place! Leave the top open so its a functioning pocket! If you dont have a sewing machine you can stitch by hand, it shouldnt take too long! Remember to open the tshirt so you dont sew the tshirt together! 

And thats it! We'd love to see your creations! Tag us on social media #vintagestyleme
