12 Curvy Patch Pocket templates that can be used to quickly add a cute and useful pocket wherever you need one (or more).
I keep in a file folder of these curvy pockets, and find it convenient to have a dedicated file folder of pockets in a variety of sizes to fit different size projects/needs. Having an easy to access selection keeps me from getting lazy about adding a pocket. If it's not right there in front of me, it can be easy to just skip it and tell myself I'll add one next time...
So I've gathered these 12 pockets together into a one printable file that you can download and start your own collection.
This 11-page document includes 3 slightly different shapes of curvy patch pocket with 4 graduated sizes of each style, so they'll fit a lot of different spaces and will come in handy for a variety of uses.
Some are small card size pockets (#1 & #5) and others are big enough for phones, small journals, etc.
Over time, the curvy patch pocket has become my favorite type of patch pocket, and now I almost always use it instead of a square patch pocket. The curved top makes them easier to slide things in and out, and the rounded edges give it a little style. These are cute enough to use on the outside of bags, or even on clothes.
Instructions showing how I sew the pockets are included. Most of you don't need instructions, but there is one page detailing how I go about my pocket making.
If you are like me and using up your scraps is a never ending adventure, these pockets can help you bust a move on your scraps.
Plus, it's a fun surprise to have a pocket in a different fabric on the inside of bags, and it can make them easier to spot.
Or take it a step further and make a patchwork pocket. These can really add a fun surprise to the inside of your bags!
These pockets are also a great place to sew in your label. Inexpensive fabric labels with unfinished edges are available on etsy in the supplies category.
