Accordion Pocket Tutorial

Here is the accordion pocket I promised! I am loving how it adds just the right amount of interest to a pocket.  You can add them to jackets, skirts, and as demonstrated here - aprons.  

Below is the pdf pattern to make an accordion pocket.  Along with the instructions, I've also included the pattern pieces.  Just print out the pattern and tape the pocket pattern sheets together to make the pocket template.  You can also download the pdf from my website's tutorial page (here).  Note: be sure your printer is not set to "Scale to fit" when printing.  If it is, the printer will shrink the pocket pattern pieces when it prints.

Very nice tutorial, however, when I go to your tutorial page to print the PDF it says "not found". deanie dot dreams at gmail dot com

Not sure if I'd ever wear an apron but I can see application of this on cargo pants.
