For the kangaroo pocket, you can draw up a pattern yourself and adjust it accordingly for whatever size jumper you’re making. Or if you’d feel better with a bit more guidance, a quick google search turns up a few options for a free downloadable kangaroo pocket patterns. Once you’ve got your pattern ready, cut your fabric with the fold down the center. Turn and press all the edges under. Clip the curves of needed, then topstitch. You’ll only topstitch the curved edges right now. Now take your pocket piece and line it up on the jumper. Pin in place. Now straight stitch along the top, then down the sides and across the bottom. Don’t forget to backstitch where you start and stop to lock in place. You’re done!
Now you’ll need to decide how wide you want each slot to be. I left either end wider to accommodate multiple brushes, markers, etc. The center sections are wide enough for one colored pencil or crayon each. Mark intervals between each slot where you’ll sew down. Stitch at each place you’ve marked from bottom to top, again backstitch at either end to keep in place. You’re done! Now youre ready to proceed with the next step in the jumper.
Now go make all the jumpers!
