Hyak and Huckleberry Sew Along Day 2
Welcome to day 2 of the Hyak and Huckleberry Sew Along! If you are just joining us, scroll to the bottom for how to join in and to see our schedule. Yesterday we prepared our pattern and cut our fabric. Today, we sew welt pockets!
Now, I know that welt pockets may be intimidating. Well, I’m here to tell you, they are really quite simple! And you are going to feel like a rock star after you sew one. Ready? I have a video for you showing you exactly how to create your welt pockets.
See, not difficult at all!! Just take your time and you will be sewing beautiful welt pockets that you will be proud of!
Tomorrow we are going to be assembling the body of our hoodie. I’ll show you how to create faux piping and how to make a 2-way invisible zipper.
