Pockets E-Book


Are you a pocket lover?  Do you want to be??

I adore pockets, and in all my years of sewing, have found them to be the quickest and most reliable way to take a project up a notch and give it a professional appearance with just a tiny bit of work.  Having an arsenal of pocket styles in your tool kit can take your sewing from so-so to BAM! with only the skills you already have–these are straight-forward styles that rely on basic sewing techniques, but will really reveal the art in your sewing.

Your purchase includes a 14-page workbook guiding you through the sewing and construction of seven styles of pocket, plus templates.  Fully printable OR can be used digitally on a tablet with full zoom and hi-resolution images.  With word searches and fun games, too!

See the description below for more details, and have fun sewing!

Product Description

Back in 2012, I created a 14-page printable workbook to accompany a practical workshop in pockets, one of my very favorite details to add to sewn projects.  Originally written for Sewing Summit, this workbook features step-by-step photos and instructions for constructing SEVEN different styles of pocket.  I loved every minute of putting this together and teaching from it, and now I’m making it available to everyone!

Pockets are dreamy, and they’re an exceptionally simple and quick way to add both functionality and visual detail to a project–I especially love them on garments, like dresses and skirts, where they’ll stand out and take your sewing from looking ho-hum homemade to looking hoo-ah handmade.  Learn to make patch pockets, lined pockets, slash pockets, zipper pockets, in-seam pockets, flap pockets and welt pockets–all with full-color photographs to guide you and clear written instructions as you go.

Use the guides and instructions on these pages to cut your own pockets–or use the included templates to create duplicates of the ones pictured.   That’s right–this guide includes both the guides for all seven styles AND printable (or traceable) templates to make your own.  You can even enlarge or shrink them to adapt the pocket styles to your own needs!  There are classic shapes and quirky ones, and fun shapes and simple ones.  In-seam pockets and patch pockets, slash pockets and welt pockets, zipper pockets and more.  All of them are clearly explained and photographed in full color.

This is a downloadable PDF file that you can save to your desktop or print as a reference.  You can also add it to your tablet, where you’re able to zoom in on the images for incredible detail and keep right next to you as you sew as a handy reference!  I loooooove my tablet, and often work with it next to me as I sew.  Having this workbook as a reference that can be printed is awesome–but it’s even better when I can add it to my iPad newsstand and access the content digitally, where I can make the images as large as I need to get the detail necessary to really get the sewing done right.  I’m so excite to offer this e-book to you with those features in place!

Your purchase will be immediately available to you as a digital download.  Please allow 2 hours for your purchase to fully process.
