Welcome to a new sewing class, in today’s lesson, I’m going to teach you how to sew a simple welt pocket.
In previous classes, I already taught you how to sew a double welt pocket. In today’s class, I’m going to teach you how to sew this same style of pocket but with only 1 welt.
Just below the video of today’s class, you can download the patterns so you can sew this pocket with me.
Today’s class begins by explaining the patterns and their notches so that you understand all the elements of this pocket.
Remember to pre-shrink the fabric and cut all the patterns following the cutting instructions that you will find in each pattern.
Then we will add the fusing to the necessary patterns and we will begin the sewing process.
In this class, unlike the double welt pocket, the long lining covers the facing so that the facing never touches your skin.
Next, we will draw the mouth of the pocket using the drills of the main pattern that will be where we will sew all the pieces.
Optionally you can make a decorative stitching around the mouth of the pocket, this stitching also offers resistance.
To finish today’s class, we will close the lining bag with a straight stitching, If the lining fabric frays a lot, just overlock it.
As always I am going to give you all the necessary measurements to make this sample but remember that you can change them to your personal taste.
Remember that if you have any questions about today’s class, you can always send me an email through your user account, in the support section.

You already know that the best way to learn sewing is by practising, so for today’s class, I’m going to ask you to make a single welt pocket.
Use the patterns that you will find just below the video.
Please send me photos of your finished pocket and the sewing process.
I will be able to give you better feedback if you use a thread that contrasts with the fabric.
