Draw your welt pocket size on your garment. In this example, I use 1 inch wide and 5 inches long. Fuse interfacing over your pocket position on the wrong side on the garment. Cut your welt piece (contrasting fabric in my case) to be 3 times the width of the welt pocket size and the length of your welt pocket plus 2 times the seam allowance. My welt piece is 3 inches wide and 6.25 inches long (for a 5/8" seam allowance). You can add interfacing to the welt piece if you'd like it to be stiffer. Fold your welt piece in half (right sides facing), and stitch the edges.
