The contrasting pocket
I wanted to add a contrasting pocket to these shirts.
I especially loved the striped shirt with a solid pocket.
Last fall I got these shirts on clearance for the boys.
I decided they needed a pocket.
It's a really simple project.
If you have some pockets laying around just slap them on the shirt and you are done!
Or, if you are like me, and don't keep a pocket stash, here's what I did.
From a different tshirt that the boys outgrew I cut a 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" square from the bottom of the shirt, using the hem as the top of the pocket.
Pressed a 1/2" hem all the way around except the top
Pressed the bottom corners of the pocket up to create some interest
Pinned and sewed them onto the shirt
Here's a (fuzzy) close up
Have you been getting into this Tshirt Week?
I'd love to see some of your projects if you did.
Just send them via email over to me.
