Spruce up an old T-shirt or top by popping some pocket detailing on it!
Want to know how? Of course you do.

You will need:

  • Sewing machine
  • Pins
  • Cotton
  • T-shirt or top
  • Doilies or colourful material



Step by Step


Step One:  Take your T-shirt and doily, decide where you would like them to go and pin them in place.I want them to act as small pockets so have placed them at the sides, you can place them anywhere you like.





Step Two:  Once pined in place take them to the sewing machine and begin to stitch, remembering not to stitch the section at the top if you'd like them to be pockets!


Step Three:  Voila, you now have a gorgeous T-shirt with delightfully detailed pockets.
