Step 4

Use the template to cut the pocket piece from the lining fabric. Turn the short edges over by 1cm (38in) to the WS and stitch down to hem.

Snip around the corners. This will reduce bulk when turning RS out.

Step 8

Turn it right side out, making sure the pockets are on the lining side. Pin and sew the line which creates the bottom of the pockets.
