Learn how to make a pocket square

Friday 7th February 2014, 16.32

We have chosen the Nomad print, a geometric motif that represents flowers, from our spring/summer 2014 Art Fabrics collection to make a pocket square. This design pays homage to the Fourth Floor fabric story, inspired by the ancient graphic language of tribal rug tradition, the capsule collection celebrates Liberty’s interior decoration floor. The pattern honours Liberty’s Rug Department which has, historically, always boasted the best selection of oriental rugs and carpets in Europe. Choose your print from our collection and make your own pocket square.

 

What you will need:

Fabric

Needle and thread

Step 1:

Begin by cutting your fabric, we have chosen to make a pocket square which is 40cm square and have added a ¼ inch seam allowance. When cutting the fabric either use a rotary cutter or a sharp pair of fabric scissors, follow the line in the design so your pocket square is straight.

Step 2:

We have hand roll the edges of the pocket square to give it a nice neat edge. Using a matching thread, make a slip stitch along the hem, keep your stitches small and at regular intervals.

Step 3:

Continue this for all four sides, making sure the corners are tucked in, secure at the end with a few stitches.
