Recently, I’ve become addicted to Pinterest. I orginally found this project on there but the tutorial and whole blog are in German. So I decided to help another online friend out and make my own version/tutorial for her.The Tutorial is after the jump, due to lots of Pictures.

Fabric (I used a scrap from my Diaper Bag and some black swirls.)
Heavy Interfacing
Tailors chalk or a pen.
Sewing machine

Project time is about 30mins


First, Gather your supplies and make sure your fabric is pressed( I skipped this step as I was trying to finish this during nap time. It didn’t end up happening though)

Next, On your interfacing, measure a rectangle of 6.5″x 3.5″ (you can make it longer if you’d like. In hindsight I wish I would have just a bit.) Then measure 3/4″ from the top and both sides Marking the lines, them mark 1-3.4″ from the top. This gives you the cut out to go around your plug. Cut this out. Set aside for now.

Next, mark your cotton 7.5″x 4.5″ (or whatever length you made yours) Mark your plug hole on here as well.

With Right Sides together Pin and sew around the plug hole. Cut out hole leaving a Seam Allowance.

 Next Your going to cut out your pocket, Mearsure 5.5″x 8″ hem the top. Fold in half and mark 2″ from the fold on both sides. fold on marks and stitch as close to edge as possible to create pintuck. Set aside.

Now comes the tricky part. Grab the bottom of one piece and push it through the plug hole. this will cause the right sides to be facing out. Press and then Place interfacing by threading one side through the cut out. Pin in place and topstitch.

Now Pin in 1/2″ on the top and sides. leave the bottom alone for now. Take Pocket pieces and center it on the bottom portion. Tuck in 1″ of pocket piece in to seam on both sides. Sew around leaving 1″ from bottom unsewn.

Pin Pintuck to side. pin in bottom making tiny pleat in center of pocket piece. Topstitch. Then enjoy!
