    Hi there...
    I am putting together this bag and in the instructions it says I should sew this pocket on the front side of the bag. Do I just sew it on with a 1/4 inch seam or am I supposed to sew it on some other way....not really sure.. Picture is below....hope you can see the pockets, right now I just have it pinned on.

    pocket is green....

    It's kind of a small pocket. I would just sew right along the edge on 2 sides.

    I thought it was small too.....I guess I will sew as close to the edge as possible.

    It does look a little small for the size of the bag..make a bigger one if you have fabric...and of course turn under the fabric, press and sew...or you can sew 2 pieces for the pocket right sides together on 3 sides..do not sew top side, turn right side out...turn in top, press, topstitch top and sew on 3 sides...I like to reinforce my pockets at the corners...

    That's what I would do, topstitch it as close as possible to the edge, or maybe make a larger pocket and topstitch that.
