Tutorial: Cargo Pants Pockets – 4 Different Ways! (Part 1 of 4)
Today’s tutorial is part one in a series of four that shows how to make 4 different kinds of cargo pockets to add to pants. This handy how-to was contributed to Sewing Mamas by Monica (Mnemonics on the forum).
To add these pockets to pants, sew the outer leg seam of the pants pocket and then sew the pocket in place on the side. Sew the inner leg seam after the pocket is attached. For each pocket, the starting fabric size is given, but feel free to adjust the size to your liking for the pants you are making.

Turn the top edge under and sew
Fold under the other three edges. Iron. Place the pocket on the pant at the desired place and sew the 3 edges in place.
That’s it! Your quick and easy pocket is done! Stay tuned for more pockets in this series.
