Tutorial: Lined patch pockets in custom shapes

The pocket tutorials continue at ikat bag, this time showing how to make a lined patch pocket.  I love the idea of a contrast-y fabric on the inside of a pocket, but the real plus of a lined patch pocket is that it makes it easy to finish off the edges of unusually-shaped pockets like the tulip-shaped pockets she shows in the tutorial.  Instead of trying to fold and press all of those corners and curves, you can use a lining to tuck all of those raw edges in between the two layers of fabric. Go to the tutorial.
