If you sew for babies and kids then you might love this false pocket pattern./. It's a fun way to add a little detail to the back of a pair of pants. You can also add them on adult pants, though I do prefer my pockets to be operational!
This pocket pattern was first published in January, 2010.
My Favorite Sewing Tools
Sewing machine: This Brother sewing machine is my favorite to recommend to anyone looking for a sewing machine that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. This newer model is also a great deal for a wonderful sewing machine.
Cutting tools: A good self healing cutting mat, rotary cutter and a clear acrylic ruler are necessary for cutting straight lines. These are important when sewing quilts and most crafty sewing projects. You'll also need a good pair of fabric shears. I do recommend pinking shears to finish seams off as well.

A little false pocket on the back of pants adds a great, simple detail. Spend an extra 30 minutes on this one, you'll be glad you did! While it is easiest to attach the false pocket pattern before assembling the pants, it is possible to add them to existing pants.
