Hi there! Amy checking in for January with two little pockets I sewed (GASP!) using lots of VSM goodies. It’s been a learning process on use my sewing machine but I must admit there is something rewarding about completing a project with machine stitches. I am still to scared to sew any clothing item but these small pockets are super simple and you can even hand stitch if you don’t own a sewing machine. So let’s get started!
First, I used canvas that I cut into long rectangles and simple folded to create my pocket. Yep, it’s that easy. I added pattern paper with a thicker weight because it makes the pocket more sturdy. I used a die cut button with the word friend layered with a vintage gold ribbon underneath. I wrapped lace and twine around the pocket and tied it with a vintage button. I made a little pennant using the ruler print and stapled the corner and added a green flower. I tucked a feather behind for added texture. The last step is to embellish with pearl accents. around “friends”.
The next pocket is the same concept. Except I fussy cut a little girl image, punched a red foil border, and added a red ticket with the word “sweet”. I embellished with photo corners and a metal flower.
This is the inside of the pockets. These would be great to tuck in a note, a piece of jewelry or candy if so inclined.
