Today we are going to add a hidden kangaroo pocket to a long sleeved Zoo. Perfect for pocket obsessed little hands to stash things while adding an interesting design element.
You can use these instructions to add pockets to almost any shirt or jumper.
Cut an extra front (orange) between the bodice & hem lines
Trace 2 circles (7.5cm diameter) that sit at least 2.5cm away from the side and bodice lines to allow
Cut the circles out. Cut 2 strips of ribbing (18.5x4cm) join at ends and pin in each circle hole (just like
the neckline). Overlock then topstitch in place.
Position your extra front fabric behind and coverstitch (or zigzag) just in from the top. Trim off any
excess. Pin this extra layer to the front around 3 the raw edges to keep together while sewing the
rest of the shirt as normal.
Whalla! Hidden kangaroo pocket to store all your nik naks or snacks!
