This is the easiest way to make a pocket.

Simply sewing it on is not a problem, but if possible, take the time to sew it on properly.

Serge/overlock the perimeter of the pocket.

Serge/overlock may not be necessary since it will be on the inside of the pocket, but it is safer to do so to prevent the fabric from fraying inside the pocket. ⇒ How to Serge/overlock (sewing machine & overlock sewing machine)

For clarity in the photo, the pockets are light pink, the body is red, and the sewing thread is black. Usually the same color fabric and thread are used. a matter of course.

Next, fold in the seam allowance with an iron.

Fold in with an iron to create the shape.

Sew the pocket opening first, but sew from the front so that the back side stops firmly in accordance with the top panel's memory.

After sewing the pocket opening, use a marking pin to secure it to the pocket attachment position on the body. Start sewing from the upper right position.

Start at the top right corner, and sew a square around the start. 1 round of sewing is required, so you don't have to start with a reverse stitch.

The advantage of starting sewing in a square is that both ends of the pocket opening are the most heavily loaded areas and are prone to fraying, so treating them this way increases strength.

Sew around the perimeter, and finish by sewing around the perimeter in the same manner.

This is what it will look like when you are done sewing. And one more step!

To increase strength, bar tack stich is applied.

A bar tack stich is a seam reinforcement (to stop fraying). As you can see on your jeans, this is a process that is always applied to areas that are prone to fraying.

If your sewing machine does not have a bar tack stich function, make a zigzag stitch when making a buttonhole or the smallest zigzag in the function, with the smallest thread feed.

A simple pocket is perfect if it can go this far! If it is a decorative pocket, it is not necessary to go this far, so depending on the situation, you can simplify it or make it more robust, depending on your image.
