Sometimes your regular jacket pockets just won’t do for
some of your private, sneaky items you’d rather not
have discovered. You can make a secret pocket easily
enough for one of your spare jackets. Better yet, make a secret
sleeve pocket that provides quick access and is custom made
for your personal items, such as a pen, calculator, mini camera,
voice recorder, flashlight, animal repellent, or personal alarm.
This project shows how to make a compact pocket for an
iPod, from material that matches the jacket color. It’s affixed
with velcro stick-ons, allowing for easy removal prior to traveling
and for cleaning purposes. Your secret pocket can be any size
you desire. Just follow the basic design example given.
