Following the instructions for the double piped bag with and without flap, there are two instructions for a single-sided piping bag in different variants. In contrast to the two-sided piping bag, the one-sided piping pocket is manufactured with only one piping. Here we show you how to sew them.

Thus, the one-sided piping bag also succeed beginners

In this tutorial, I show on the one hand the classical method, as it is implemented by tailors and on the other hand, the processing method in the ready-made fashion. If the piping of the one-sided piping bag is wider than 2 cm, it is referred to as a used patent pocket or as a welt pocket, the creation of which I will describe in a separate manual again exactly.

Difficulty level 2.5 / 5
(with this manual and a little patience but also suitable for beginners)

Material costs 1/5
(no additional costs - usually results from the pattern)

Time required 2.5 / 5
(variable depending on exercise and substance type)

Material and preparation

material selection

The piping is, as in the two-sided bag, usually made of the outer fabric. Occasionally, fabrics in contrasting colors or lining in the same color are used, making them look more elegant. Basically, however, the production of any material is possible.

However, both the piping itself and the left side of the outer fabric should be strengthened again with non-woven fabric in order to support this heavily strained area.

Amount of material and the pattern

In the pattern usually amount of material, position and size are already given. If you want to attach a single-sided piping bag in a garment without pockets, mark the position roughly on the left side of the fabric and measure the width of the hand on the future support (without the thumb at the widest point) and add approx. 3 cm to it,

As already written in my tutorial on the double piped pocket, my hand is about 9 cm wide. In addition, there are 3 cm, because my hand is not flat, so my Eingrifflänge is 12 cm. Then add 1.5 cm (in total 3 cm) seam allowance, so the total length is 15 cm. My piping should be about 1 cm high. Since it is folded and then quilted in the middle, the required height is therefore 4 cm.

Thus, I reinforce a piece of outer fabric from the left side with ironing insert and draw two piping stripes with the dimensions 15 cm x 4 cm and cut them out exactly.

Tip: The ironing insert is only intended to reinforce the fabric, therefore volume fleece would be inappropriate here. For my sewing example I use H180, but the H250 would also be suitable.

On the left side of the outer fabric, I put on a piece of fleece, which in length and height in each case about 2 cm beyond the length and height of my piping strip goes and iron on this. Then I record the engagement length (12 cm), which is the incision line. The piping should be 1 cm wide, so I draw above and below this auxiliary line two more auxiliary lines in each case at a distance of 0.5 cm (in total 1 cm Paspelbreite), these are the seam lines.

Classic method

So that these auxiliary lines are also visible on the right side of the fabric, I now staple all the lines with a yarn in contrasting color without sewing, so that they can be easily removed later.

In my example, I'm starting from a bag in which the pocket bag is sewn from the back of outer fabric and front lining material. The length corresponds exactly to the piping length, ie 15 cm. The height can be adjusted. In my case, it is sufficient that I can reach in with my hand up to the upper row of ankles, that is 10 cm plus the seam allowances of 1 cm each, ie 12 cm. The front pocket of the lining fabric is also cut to a length of 15 cm. The height is 1 cm less, as this is my piping height.

Thus, I need 15 cm x 12 cm for the outer fabric and 15 cm x 11 cm for the lining fabric.

On both the piping strip and the pocket bag made of outer material, I mark 1 cm additional seam allowance.

Then I fix both parts exactly at these marks on the seam lines of the right side of the outer fabric, right to right, with pins. The start and end points can be marked by additional pins.

Turn briefly and check again to make sure that all needles match the markings on the seam lines, then sew both seam lines exactly to the marked start and end points, sewing both sides together. Make sure that you do not accidentally sew in the overlapping fabrics and fold them carefully while sewing.

Now turn the fabric to the left and check that the seams are exactly in the markings.

The stitching thread of the incision line can now be removed. At the beginning and at the end of the incision line, I mark a distance of 1 cm and draw straight lines from there to my seam ends, so that a small triangle is formed. Along these lines is now cut through the outer fabric. Make sure that the seam allowances of the piping and the pocket bag on the right side of the fabric are not cut along.

As with the two-sided version here is a short trouble shoot:

  • If you have cut too far, stitch again to the top of the incision so that nothing separates.
  • If you have not cut far enough, just cut exactly to the seam ends.

Now pocket pouches and piping strips are pulled in through the incision and ironed as follows: The seam allowances of the pocket pouch are ironed upwards, the seam allowances of the piping are ironed out.

Apply the fabric to the right side and pull out the piping strip so that it exactly closes with the overlying seam edge. Stick the piping strip in two layers with pins and staple them together by hand so that nothing can slip. Depending on the type of fabric used, you can also iron so that the top edge of the piping is beautifully straight.

Align the piping sides and the two trimmed triangles on both sides and staple them together. Fold the pocket bag upwards so that it is not sewn.

Turn left again and place the food bag pouch flush on the bottom edge of the piping. Pin both layers together and sew them together, just short of the existing seam line.

Remove any stitching threads that you have marked. Put the bag pouches together, put them together and sew these two fabric layers together.

Make sure that the outer fabric is not sewn - fold it down to the side.

And done!

Are you interested in sewing a double, two-sided piping bag "> double piped pocket


Fold the piping strip lengthwise left to left, iron it and stitch the open edges together. Mark the center line (each 1 cm on each side for the planned piping width of 1 cm). Stick both piping strips and outer fabric bag pouches to the seam lines on the right side of the outer fabric and sew this exactly to the beginning and end points. The further production corresponds to the classical method.

Quick guide

1. Determine the length of the incision (hand width +3 cm) + cut each 2 cm NZ with 4 cm height 2x
2. Mark on piping strip and outer fabric bag per 1 cm NZ
3. both pinning, checking and sewing on the respective seams
4. cut open, pull both inwards, iron on NZ (bag upwards, piping apart)
5. If necessary, fit the piping, pin, stitch and iron
6. Stitch the piping with "triangles"
7. Lay the feed bag flush with the lower edge of the piping edge and stitch tight
8. Pin the bag at the side and at the bottom and stitch
9. And you're done!
