Now we will prepare the
inner pocket. Take the height measurement from the
embroidered outer shell piece and divide it by two.
Then, add 1/2 inch for seam allowance. Cut a piece of
fabric to 4 1/2 inches wide by the height dimension you
just calculated. The height of our embroidered piece is
11 inches. So, we divided 11 by 2, which equals 5 1/2.
Then, we added 1/2 inch - so, our final height dimension
for the pocket is 6 inches.
Fold the top edge of
the pocket fabric over to the wrong side 1/2 inch,
press, and sew a 1/4 inch seam along the top edge only.
Then, fold the right side of the pocket fabric in 1/2
inch to the wrong side and press. Lay one of the inner
flaps with the seamed edge on the right. Then, align the
folded edge of the pocket with the seamed edge of the
inner flap, on the bottom of the flap. Pin in place and
sew a 1/4 inch seam along the right folded edge only.
