This pretty pocket T-shirt has been popping up all over my Pinterest feed lately, and I thought it would make an easy DIY project- a cheap and simple way to update a plain tee. I am, unfortunately, both pretty lazy and sewing-ignorant, so I went for a fabric glue version. It truly takes 10 minutes top (plus drying time) and couldn't be easier.
You will need:
- Piece of fabric (about 6"x6" or 5"x5")
- Post-it (optional)
- Pen or pencil
- Fabric glue
- A piece of paper
- The free pattern, a printer, and heavy-weight paper or a piece of cardboard
- No printer? No problem. Simply draw a pocket pattern on cardboard.
1. Print the free pattern onto heavy weight paper, or print onto standard paper then transfer onto cardboard. Cut along the external lines.
8. When your pocket is fully dry, place a piece of paper inside your shirt (so that no glue seeps through) and delicately apply fabric glue along the edges, trying to distribute it evenly. Place your pocket onto your tee, press firmly and let dry for about half an hour.
