The importance of pockets is usually underestimated. Not only do they serve as a storage space for our
carry-ons, but they also provide you with the possibility of emptying your hands at any minute. In
modern-day fashion, not all sweatshirts are equipped with the right pockets. However, with a little bit of
creativity and usage of VELCRO products or hook and loop product like Strenco, you can install your very own do-it- yourself pocket on your
favorite sweatshirt! Decorate and design it as per your own sense of fashion, and what is most exciting is
that you can create interchangeable ones. Change them as per your mood!

Do-It- Yourself Sweatshirt Pockets
Step 1: Measure, Trace, and Cut
Using the sweatshirt pocket template, trace out your patterned fabric in order to have a rough design of
the pocket you are installing onto your sweatshirt. Once you have a trace, use the scissors to cut out the
fabric into the pocket style you want to make. Now, go ahead and use the seam allowances of the
pocket template to trace them onto the VELCRO Brand Attach-A- Patch Tape. Once done, you will need
to cut them off. Note that the pocket template may be quite large for a sweatshirt, so you may need to
print it off on two pieces of papers – preferably split in half.
Step 2: Sewing time!
The hook side of the VELCRO product get the sew on hook and loop, is going to be sewed to the sweatshirt as per the placement of
your pocket. Carefully use a sewing machine to complete this task. Now using the seam allowances you
cut off, iron them down onto your pocket that you cut off. Now get the loop side of the VELCRO product
and sew it onto the pockets.
Step 3: Attach It to Your Sweatshirt
Your sweatshirt now has the hook of the VELCO products waiting for their pockets to be attached. You
can stick your pockets onto them and add a whole new touch to your sweatshirt. This process can be
altered slightly as per the design and measurements to allow for a whole new do-it- yourself experience.
Furthermore, these pockets are interchangeable which means you can design multiple pockets and
change them as per your needs! A whole new look for a whole new day.
Customized Sweatshirt Pockets on the Go!
Customers rarely have any say in the garments they choose to buy – they are mass-manufactured and
sold, allowing for minimal user input. However, with a little bit of creativity and assistance from the
VELCRO products, you can revolutionize the way you dress up by adding a touch of beauty and
aesthetics to your garments. A sweatshirt pocket can definitely be classic and spiffy, and it is definitely
an eye-catcher if it is self-customized using your own patterns and sizes! Creativity does take you a long
