I am so ecstatic to introduce to you our special guest today: Stacy from Hart + Sew! I first fell in love with Stacy's vintage flair after seeing some of her projects pinned all over Pinterest like this one. She is one talented lady! Stacy also has this adorable shop where she sells vintage children's clothing. I think you are really going to love this tutorial she is sharing with us today... :)
Hello! My name is Stacy and you can find me over at Hart + Sew sharing my love of children's vintage clothing, sewing, and thrifting, along with a little bit of my life as a mama thrown in... I have two sweet girls, Little Miss and Lark, and they inspire me to be creative each and everyday.
Today I am sharing a tutorial and pattern for a quick and easy triangle pocket. I made this floral print dress for my daughter to wear as part of her Halloween costume a couple of years ago, and afterward it needed a little something special to be worn on it's own. Inspired by vintage frocks, I decided to add triangle pockets as a unique alternative to a more traditional square pocket. I think it completely transformed the dress from boring to sweet. It was so quick and easy, see the six simple steps and pattern below.
Step 1. Cut out two pieces of the pattern (see below), fold over right sides together and iron.
Step 2. Sew around open edges using a 3/8 inch seam allowance, leaving a small opening on one side. Trim seams and cut bottom corner off.
Step 3. Turn pocket right side out and iron flat.
Step 4. Slip stitch opening on side closed.
Step 5. Pin pockets on clothing (if you are making your clothing from scratch do this before you sew the pieces together).
Step 6. Sew around sides, and that's it! You can add a button for a fun embellishment if you want.
Just click on the pattern below to save and print.
