I put together a little tutorial on making front welt pockets on your pants. I prefer welt pockets, if I'm going to have pockets at all, for several reasons. The main reason is that I like the way they feel better than having to stick my hands in side-seam pockets. Also, there is no bulk added at the side seam using this method. Thirdly, I just like welt pockets! If you click on the icon above, it should take you to a link on Flickr.

Happy sewing!

Superb tutorial. I used to be a little scared of welts, but the more I sew them, they are becoming much easier.

Fantastic tip. This is the most flattering pocket type ever, in my opinion. I've not had the courage to try it, but I do now.

Very informative. I am sure that when I finally get the nerve up to do a welt pocket I will refer to it. Thanks for taking the time.
