In the midst of bridal season one of my good friends and artist Andrew Briggs asked me to sew a few pocket squares for his upcoming wedding. Naturally, I said yes!
Enjoy this three step tutorial.
Cut out a square piece of fabric in the dimensions 16 inches x 16 inches. Total 1 inch seam allowance all around is already included.
One edge needs to run along the lengthwise grain and the other on the crosswise grain. This will make sure your square stays like a square and does not warp.
With a 1 inch seam allowance in our pattern, fold and press each edge twice at 1/2 inch each time.
With matching thread sew folded edges down at an equal distance from pocket square border in a complete square.
