Beth Bradley helps you finish your garment with a lined patch pocket that is as detailed as the rest of the garment. This is not just a one layer pocket that can easily rip. You will learn how to add lining, make the right measurements and match the pattern you have created or that was already made.

    This is good for pockets on light or medium weight fabrics. For heavier fabrics, like pockets in a cotton duck beach bag or picnic table covering, I have another technique that works very well. I would love to post my steps but am a new subscriber and am unsure how to go about it.

    When making the lining for the pocket, if you are using a 1/4″ seam between the pocket and the lining, you need to add 1/2″ seam allowance, otherwise your pocket will not be the original size. Also, if you use the same fabric as the pocket, you won’t see the lining edges peeking out when you are done.
    A production note: she says “um” way too much!

    If the lining was cut just a fraction smaller, it would be easier to favour the lining to the inside of the pocket when pressing.

    I appreciate the topics covered in your videos, but I am still struggling to make peace with the videography and composition. If National Sewing Circle hopes to compete successfully with Craftsy, they will have to make sure there are no moments like occur at 8 minutes 32 seconds and 8 minutes 40 seconds, This video is better than some you produce because at least the important action is visible (it is not in some other videos) but this is still distracting and makes it appear as if it was done in someone’s living room rather than a professional studio. If I am to pay for another year subscription out of my meager funds, it is important to me that the quality of the presentation (not the already excellent content) improve and appear professional.

    When using washable basting tape, unroll a piece making sure BOTH the transfer paper AND the sticky tape part are intact. Cut or tear to a length needed and affix the strip to the fabric where needed. Use the transfer paper as a guide and press firmly onto the fabric. Then peal the top layer of transfer paper off the sticky tape. I have never seen anyone use the method in the video.
