How to mend a torn pocket.

Hello there peeps!

How is everyone? It’s been very busy over here at solely sewing. Alterations are playing a heavy part in my day to day! But today it’s all about a mend!

This is a easy one, a tear in a jeans pocket.. Some people would throw theses out… DON’T! They are such an easy fix.

Find a scrap of similar weight fabric add a piece of cotton and run up some zig zag rows… Find what works for you!

So your ready to sew! You should only need the one pin… That’s for the top of the pocket, that needs to be tucked under at the corner. This is so your sewing machine foot can get past the rivet that is fixed at the top.

When You get to the top of the pocket, You do a straight reverse stitch to secure. You then finish off that tucked up corner with a straight stitch! Then that’s you done!
