Pocket Square How to 

Formal events are expensive. Every dollar you spend adds up so quickly, why not save a few bucks on the accessories? I recently made a pocket square for my son’s big night out at prom. It’s an easy project, you can complete it in less than 30 minutes. Here’s how! 

I used a scrap of fabric from my stash for this project. The deep red shade was just what I was looking for. This fabric is stretch cotton sateen, you can also use a knit or satin fabrics for this project. 

Tutorial: Three Easy Steps! 

1. Cut a square of fabric 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Grainline doesn’t really matter here since it’s a square piece. 

2. Make a rolled hem by stitching a 1/4″ seam all the way around the edges. Press. 

3. Sew another row of hem stitching by turning the edge over again, and stitching in place. Press. 

That’s it! So easy! This would make a great gift for a groom or the groomsmen and adds so much class to the outfit.

Fold your pocket square in quarters and tuck it into your jacket breast pocket. If you haven’t worn a pocket square before, you may need to open the basting stitches with a seam ripper, then tuck the square in place. 

You could also make a matching bow tie. If you want to see that tutorial, click here
