How To Make And Attach An Ankara Pocket

Hi Crafters,

Its been a while since our last DIY, we’ve been up to a lot of exciting stuff. The most recent was our Ankara Workshop which held last week Monday&Tuesday! It was awesome I tell you, see how it went here.

Today I would be showing you how to make an Ankara Pocket and how you can attach it to anything! I would be using one of our signature tote bags as an example.

Cute pockets right!

Materials required:

  • Ankara Material (duhh ? )
  • Scissors
  • Glue / Sewing machine
  • Thread
  • whatever you want to attach your pocket to


Step 1 : Cut out a square shape using your desired dimensions. 5in x 5in would be fine

Step 2: Fold the squared material into two and cut off the edges in a triangular shape


Step 3: Turn the edges in round the pocket shape and sew/ glue

Step 4: Take your now-formed pocket and sew/glue neatly to your shirt/ bag/ book/ wherever you want.

Step 5: Show it off!?
