Pockets - it's the one that has the point at the bottom. I have it cut out and what ? Can someone tell me where I can find information on how to sew a tee shirt pocket. The ones on YouTube are no help. I'm sure there are information in here but I'm frustrated. Thanks !!

Easy to find almost any Sewing tips on Google by just asking a question like "How to sew a pocket on a T-shirt." You'll get the Tutorials from Blogs and also Pinterest photos.
Use some interfacing on stretchier fabric.
It helps to use a stick glue or iron-on tape to hold in place better than pins. I add pockets to purchased T's for grandkids that match the shorts or skirts I sewed.

ohthelovelythings.com shows you how to iron one over a cardboard template, which gives you nice straight edges.

behind-the-hedge-row.com/ from 06/2013 shows 10 cute pockets for variety.

Once the pocket is secured to the garment with pins, glue or tape, start at the top of one side of the pocket and reinforce your stitching. You can either back tack or sew a small narrow triangle on the upper edge. Look through your closet and see if you can find any like that with the triangle. Either way, it will help keep the pocket from tearing if the pocket is used.

Then sew down along the edge of the pocket to the end and leave your needle down, pivot and sew to the bottom point. Pivot, and continue doing the same at each point until you reach the upper edge of the last side of the pocket. Finish by back tacking or doing the triangle again.

I hope that made sense. :-)
