Woo hoo hoo! It's A Welt!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly present my first successful welt pocket!

My first non-disaster of a welt pocket
Is it perfect, no. Not yet. But it is such a vast improvement over my last attempt that I think we can call it a victory. Note the absence of puckering. The keys to success? Very sharp scissors and Gorgeous Ann's tutorial.

On the next version I will use thinner fabric for the pocket bag so it doesn't show through.

Hooray! And thanks for all the votes of confidence.

Nice work! I haven't had the guts to attempt a welt pocket yet, so I truly commend you.

You did an awesome job on that welt pocket. I guess I need to get my butt going and finally try and make one myself
