You will need:

  • T-shirt
  • Piece of fabric (about 6″x6″ or 5″x5″)
  • Post-it (optional)
  • Iron
  • Scissors
  • 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.

Before you start the work, you have to decide where you want to place the pocket. And the best way to do this is wear the t-shirt by yourself and stand in front of a mirror and choose where is the best place to place it. Then iron the t-shirt and the piece of fabric to prevent any unwanted wrinkles.

1. Print the free pattern onto heavy weight paper then transfer onto cardboard. Cut along the external lines.

2. Place the pattern on your fabric, trace and cut.

3. Cut the pattern along the internal lines, then place it onto the piece of fabric.

4. Carefully pull up each fabric edge around the pattern guide and iron flat. Remove the guide.

5. Gently apply fabric paste along one edge, attempting to distribute it equally. Press immovably. Rehash until all edges are hemmed.  Then put a book over the pocket (or anything that has a flat base) and let it dry for 60 minutes.

6. The point when your pocket is completely dry, put a piece of paper inside your shirt (so no glue leaks through) and carefully apply fabric glue along the edges, attempting to distribute it firmly. Place your pocket onto your tee, press firmly and let dry for 60 minutes.

Voilà! Wear your t-shirt proudly.
