Patch pocket with flap

Patch pockets are easier to carry than mortise pockets. But they will require special attention. For example, to get an even product, you need to correctly draw it. To sew correctly, it must first be swept away with the part. And to create seams along the edge of the valve and the pocket itself, you need to iron. About all this later in the article, as well as about the types of patch pockets with valves.

Forms of patch pockets

Usually pockets of this category are separated by the form itself. The principle of their creation is practically unchanged. What is most interesting, as some masters are used to thinking, the valve always repeats the bottom lines along the bottom, but this is not entirely true.

The valve can also be made triangular, although the bottom of the product will be square with soft rounded corners.

With a detailed description, such a decoration can be performed by a beginner.

Pattern patch pocket with flap

As a pattern, work is to be done with rectangles. Bottom for the pocket itself. For him, mark the width and length. The edges can be round or have a different shape. The valve always runs wider than the bottom pattern . It will also require length and width, and pre-scribble details on the fabric. Then make small allowances for the seams and you can cut the finished parts.

Duplicate the details

Typically, the wizard performs these elements from two layers. Therefore, it is worthwhile to transfer the patterns again, and cut them out according to such figures.

We combine and grind parts

Put together the finished clippings, make small hemings of the fabric inward.

Important! Combine seamy sides.

Further, in order not to shift anything, it will be necessary to carefully download the attached details. This can be done with simple pins or small stitches. It is no secret that for simple sewing masters very often use a contrasting thread, this is very convenient.

Advice! To get even edges and very even seams, before laying the main seam along the edge between the connected parts, you can use an iron to iron future seams.

Basting and ironing parts

They chose the shape of the product itself and its upper cap . Then it is better to use special paper, if you wish, you can take ordinary leaflets. The product itself is not so large, and therefore sheets from a notebook are suitable, it is very convenient to draw a drawing on a sheet in a cage.

Drawn the shape and size that fit the model. Then you need to transfer all this to the fabric. Just cut out the finished drawings, attach and draw a marker for sewing. If this was not at hand, the craftswomen often use a small piece of soap . This fabric does not spoil and the line is clearly visible, even on light fabric. But the main thing is to get rid of it further will be much easier and without spots. They cut it out and ironed the finished parts with an iron. Just try not to stretch the corners of the fabric with the iron, just easy ironing.

We turn on the front side

When connecting the parts, you can combine them with the front sides, but in this case, it will be necessary to turn out the parts and iron the joints. Additionally, you will need to make allowances for seams approximately 0.5 cm from each edge. At this distance and stitch.

Ironing and stitching are available

The next ironing took place on the front side, and the part received its clear outline. It's time to decorate it with an extra line, but already on the front side. It is desirable to lay the line itself at a distance of only 0.1 cm from the edge.


Detailed description for the bottom of the pocket, the compartment itself.

Top hem

To obtain such a plump part from the upper side, you will need to make additional allowances at the time of construction of the pattern. Further, this part is simply tucked up, and it turns out to be "locked" inside the compartment in the wrong cloths of matter.

Connection pocket with products

After all the seams are completed and the fabrics are fixed together, an equally interesting and responsible process begins. How to even fix the product in place? You can use geometric skills.

First, use a special marker or bar of soap to build a perpendicular. This line is at right angles to the bottom line of the product, and continue this line until it intersects with the pocket. Then again build a perpendicular, but already to the line of continuation. So we got a line on which it is worth placing the bottom side of the product.


The pocket space is defined, and you can attach it. You can use needles or several stitches of a contrasting thread.

Sew a pocket

It is better to sew a pocket strictly along the line that connects the fabrics of the compartment. But you can lay a neighboring line. Only do it carefully and with one interval. The presser foot of the machine helps in this. Usually its width is 0.5 cm. Therefore, you can simply retreat to the width of the presser foot, and calmly make an even and accurate seam.


Remove pins or pull out contrasting thread. Now it’s the turn for the iron to again smooth the product already sewn to the base.

Pocket and valve connection

There are two ways to connect the pocket and valve. Outwardly, they practically do not differ. Although the first one is sewing it from the inside is much more convenient. Let's consider both further.


Initially, we drew a line on which the object should be located. For even markup, also use a perpendicular technique.

Attach the valve to the pocket

First, try to attach in the first way. This we attach the object with its inner side to the line, and skip the line. The valve in this position seems to be just open. Next, close it, and evaluate the work.

The second method involves immediately bending, and you will need to flash through several layers. This is not always convenient.

Ironing from 2 sides

Sew in the way you like, and now you can iron with iron on both sides.

Outline of clothing items

Now is the time to pay attention to the details that will adorn this product and clothing in general. At this stage, you just need to attach and determine the location. It is better to mark them with markers as well.

Sew clothing items

It's time to pick up a needle and thread.

Important! When fastening buttons not according to the color of the fabric, use clothing in a tone of fabric. Rarely does a master use a thread to match the button itself.

Sewed, and appreciated their work. You can decorate not only with buttons, but also with different buttons and even rhinestones. Create a beautiful canvas of strassik.

With these steps, the masters achieve perfectly even pockets. Such work will be difficult to distinguish from factory work. The lines are smooth, and the masters are satisfied.
