    Optional (if you want to have a matching back pocket) remove back pocket of jeans with a seam ripper, and use the pocket as an outline to cut out a replicated pocket using felt and necktie fabric.

    Overlap your necktie fabric over the top of your felt pocket, iron and pin in place, then sew back onto the rear pocket of your jeans.
