  • Final Product: What You Will Create

    Step 1:
    Hoop stabilizer and coordinating fabric.

    Step 2:
    Load the design in your machine stitch out design.

    Step 3:
    Remove from hoop and trim to desired pocket size adding seam allowance. I trimmed this to 5” wide x 7” tall. This could work well trimmed at 5 x 6 as well.

    Step 4:
    Fold 1/4" to wrong side. Press for seam allowance.

    Step 5:
    Using my sewing machine I sewed the seam allowance down with a decorative stitch before I actually sewed the pocket to the placemat. I also added a small strip of fabric to the top of the pocket for a little added pizazz. It is 1" wide and folded to the wrong side to hide the raw edges, press and stitch to pocket.

    Step 6:
    Sew pocket to placemat. I used a straight stitch very close to the edge of the pocket using matching thread.

    Step 7:
    I also made a pocket using a heart shape. Stitch out the design and trim to desired pocket size plus seam allowance. This piece is trimmed 5” tall x 7” wide.

    Step 8:
    Put a little glue from a glue stick around the back edge and press with an iron to secure seam allowance. This will hold it in place to make the stitching much easier to do.

    Step 9:
    Stitch down seam allowance along the edge so the top of the pocket is secured then stitch the pocket to the placemat. I used the purple thread from the flower design to stitch the pocket to the placemat.

    Step 10:
    Add utensils and a napkin!

    Fun with pockets!
