This design makes a real, usable pocket with topstitching.This pocket design is made in the hoop and can be done in 1 or 2 hoopings. You will complete the pocket design including monogram in the hoop, 'turn' it right side out through the opening, and then you can sew the pocket on your shirt with your sewing machine, or in a second hooping if you choose.
Appli-Pocket 1 (or Faux Pocket):
This fun little pocket has just one additional step than a regular applique, as you will need to fold the fabric to create the look of a real pocket. The top has a folded edge and the sides and bottom are satin stitch. If you choose to monogram this pocket style, it will be sewn shut and not a real pocket. If you don't monogram this pocket OR if you want to monogram the fabric before doing the applique, it can be a real, usable pocket.
Appli-Pocket 2: NEW!
This is a ‘faux’ pocket that has added stitching - either as a design on top of the pocket or topstitching detail on the pocket. This design has an extra step that will stitch the fold down to the fabric so it will lay flat when the extra stitching on the pocket is done. This pocket design is just an applique and does not make a ‘real’ pocket, it looks like a pocket but isn’t. The top has a folded edge and the sides and bottom are satin stitch.
