After sewing my first welt pockets, I found myself ravenously blood-thirsty for MOAR KNOWLEDGE on this absolutely fascinating subject. It turns out that Googling “welt pocket tutorial” results not only in a ton of tutorials, but a never-ending rabbit hole of welt pocket awesomeness. There are SO many tutorials and SO many different techniques. If one were a crazy sewing lady, one might find oneself in welt pocket heaven. Just a warning. 🙂
Anyway, I found myself mentally classifying all the tutorials I came across into various categories based on technique, and it soon became too much for my poor little brain to handle. Then I started writing it all down in a big list. Then I thought, maybe some other crazy sewing ladies (and dudes?) might also enjoy a categorized list of glorious welt pocket goodness. You see where this is going…
Allow me to humbly present:
A Big List of Welt Pocket Tutorials!
Single welts, double welts, zippered welts, welts with flaps, the works!
A few disclaimers: I haven’t tested out any of these tutorials. I didn’t include video tutorials. There are WAY MORE welt pocket tutorials out there! I got wiped out and stopped after about 50 Google hits.
With that said, enjoy! 🙂
