1. Fold the top edge over 1/4″ towards the wrong side of the fabric and press flatIMG_0487

2. Now fold the top edge over 1/2″ towards the right side of the fabric. IMG_0488

3. Sew the folds in place 1/2″ from the sides. trim the seam allowance at each cornerIMG_0489

4. Turn the top of the pocket right side out. Fold the sides and bottom edges in 1/2″ and press flat. I like to poke the top 2 corners out with a crochet hook to make sure they’re nice and square. Top stitch across the top edge. IMG_0490

5. Now fold the pocket in half and make sure your point meets right in the middle. Adjust if needed and now you have a perfectly symmetrical pocket!IMG_0491

6. Pin to your project and top stitch in place along the side and bottom edges
