    • Before cutting your fabric, measure the length of the fabric you want to extend.

    • Measure the length and width of the original pocket. Write these measurements down.

    • Add one inch to the length (L+1in) and do the same for the width (W+1in).

    • Next, double the width for your final calculation (W+1) *2).

    • Take your piece of fabric and trace your measurements onto the material.

    • It may be easier to fold the large piece of fabric in half, so you only have to trace and cut once.

    • Ensure your two cut pieces of fabric are the same size.

    • In order to make sure that the pocket will be successful, align the piece of cloth to the pocket. If the measurements are accurate fold your piece in half where the fold is the bottom. Pin the cloth to the bottom of the original pocket and the sides as well.

    • Fold the two cut pieces in half widthwise. For designed fabric, make sure the dull side is facing you.

    • Mark a line half an inch above the raw edge on the bottom side and the side opposite of the fold.

    • Take your needle and thread and sew along your marked lines. Keep the stitches small and close together for durability.

    • Thread size will vary.

    • Once you have finished stitching, be sure to tie a knot.

    • After you have completed your stitching, check to make sure your new pockets are secure. There should only be one opening in each pocket.

    • Flip the new pockets inside out to hide the stitching and expose the outside pattern. On your original pocket, mark a straight line a half an inch above the raw edge.

    • Take your two new pocket squares and place them inside the old pockets with the opening matching the old pockets.

    • Stitch the new pocket together by going along your marked line on the original pocket.

    • Avoid stitching the opening shut by only joining one original layer and one new layer all around your pocket.

    • Once finished, pull your new pocket downwards and make sure it is attached tightly.

    • You can use a clothes iron to iron the pocket if you want it to be flatter.

Conclusione

Once you have finished, you can now flip your pants back out and test your new pockets.
