  • Step 1

    Before you start, decide where you want your pocket to be placed. An easy way to do this is to wear your tee-shirt, look in a mirror and place a post-it where you would like the pocket to be placed.

    Also iron your tee-shirt and your piece of fabric, to prevent any unwanted wrinkles.

    When your pocket is fully dry, place a piece of paper inside your shirt (so that no glue seeps through) and delicately apply fabric glue along the edges, trying to distribute it evenly. Place your pocket onto your tee, press firmly and let dry for about half an hour.
