Mark place and length of the pocket slit and cut the fabric as the red lines show. (The length of the slit is the blue line)

Cut 2 pieces of fabric: about 2cm longer than your slit and 2cm wide.(further referred to as "slit pieces")  Fold in center.

Align center line of each "slit piece" with a blue line in first picture. Open sides facing each other. Sew through all layers along blue line.

Fold "slit pieces" through the slit. Consequently the closed sides now face each other.
 This is what it should look like from the inside:

Outside view:

Fold forward along dotted line.

You should see the little triangle and parts of the "slit pieces" hanging over to the right.
Sew them together along the blue line.

repeat on the other end

You probably want to have a pocket behind that slit.
When you attach it, sew along the blue line.

If you want to add a zipper remember to do that before you attach the pocket.

I suggest you try this on some leftover fabric as you go through this tutorial. Some parts are hard to explain if you don't see them.

Tell me if there are any questions.

I'll try to take some pics next time I make a slit pocket that is not black on black.

 You can also make pockets with only one "slit piece" that coveres the whole slit:

the slit piece should then be at least 3cm wide.

they make perfect cell phone pockets!!

I just finished this messenger bag:

I knew exactly what i wanted it to look like and that included several things i've never done before.
Here is my first messenger bag (i made several small bags and purses)
with my first ever embroidery and my first attempt at piping.

cell phone pocket

w/ flap open

lining and inside pocket

It's going to be a birthday present for a friend. I hope she likes it!

I'm really happy with it and i think i'll make another one for myself.

What do you think?
