My trendy jeans cover

Was you wondering when the blog is back? Well, it's done, we start the year in force with lots of new tutorials! We have prepared in advance to offer you a new tutorial every week. And we start today with a super easy tutorial to make a zipped pocket in hyper-trendy jeans. It’s a quick, easy and perfect tutorial for all levels of stitching. 

Supplies : 

You find below the proportions of the patterns of this pretty pocket.

Step 1: Cut your pieces: 

  • Position the different parts of the pattern on the fabric and cut according to the indications.
  • (Optional: if your fabric is a bit flexible you can also heat up your pieces so that the pocket is better.)

Step 2: Installation of the piping on the cover:

  • Place the piping on the place of the fabric, the "bead" opposed by the fabric. Keep it with a first seam 1 cm from the edge.
  • Place the second fabric (the room corresponds to the middle of the pocket) Place against the place. Prick all along the sewing you just made to fix the piping, this line serves as a landmark.
  • Repeat this step for the other side, so you get one side of the cover. Repeat this operation to carry out the second face of the cover.

Step 3: Installation of the zipper: 

  • Take one of the faces of your pocket and open the zipper.
  • Place, right -in -room place, closure, at the edge of the top of the cover. Now seam using the pressing foot for zipper.
  • All you have to do is sew the other side of the closure, on the other side of the pocket.

Step 4: Final assembly of the cover:

  • Leave the zipper open so that you can turn the pocket over.
  • Pin, the right place, the faces of the cover, paying attention to the fittings, then assemble the sides and the bottom by a seam. If you want to have something to hang your pocket, you can add a small passer -by by fixing it in one of the seams.
  • All you have to do is return everything!

Step 5: Finishes: 

  • Remove the angles and seams inside the pocket so that it can position itself well once returned. Now iron the seams for a very clean result.

And here is your zipped jeans pouch is finished. If you realize this tutorial do not hesitate to share it on social networks with the hashtag #lesouponsdesaintpierre.

You can make this cover in lots of different materials, we decided to do it again in a pretty green suede with a nice silver piping.
