Making Pockets on Garments & Clothing : How to Make Facing Patch Pockets


I’m Candi Cane Canncel with Expert Village.
So in this clip we’re actually going to continue working on the facing of our pocket. After
you’ve folded over and pinned, you’re going to go ahead and run a seam down just take
it to the machine. (sewing) You’re just going to go all the way around and then back up (sewing. After you’ve done
that, you’re going to turn your facing inside out. A good idea is to clip the corners. It
will just make it easier for you to turn, hold on to the corners and you turn it like
that. What this is going to do is actually make the stitching is going to make it easier
to fold under because then we’re going to patch it to the garment that way. So what
you can do is just go ahead and press it. You want to kind of flatten it out and then
take your iron and press it. (pressing) Then you’re just going to pin it down and this
is just going to keep the edges really nice and flat. This just holds it in place so you
can get the bottom edges too.
