My first ever welt pocket!

I joined the Monthly Stitch a couple of months ago and this months challenge is a ‘New Year -New Skill’.  I’d decided to challenge myself to learn how to make welt pockets. After much googling and reading countless tutorials I found one over at Oliver and S that seamed easy to follow with clear photos. It took 3 hours but I’m so pleased with the result and would be confident enough to go straight ahead and add one to a garment. Now, I’m really not sure what to do with 13″x10″ inch piece of fabric with the most gorgeous welt pocket on. Maybe I’ll just frame it! Edited with BlogPad Pro …..the next day….. Just one last one, honest! This shows the inside, I woke and swooned over it again!!
