What does an embroidery hoop plus fabric, plus a glue gun make?
No kidding! It takes about 20 minutes to make (after supplies are assembled).
You can sew it or make it no sew- your choice!
What You Will Need:
How to make it:
2. Press your fabric and spray it with a spray starch to give it body. I used my homemade spray starch see this blog post here
3. Fold the fabric for the pocket in 1/2 wrong sides together, lay it right sides together on top of the background fabric and "Audition" it in the hoop for placement.
4. Take your fabric out of the hoop and attach the fabrics together with glue or sewing ( I sewed a line just beyond the hoop pinch line to attach them)
Trim away the excess fabric leaving about 2" beyond the hoop size to upholster to the back. Use pinking shears or a wavy blade to cut edges and avoid fraying.
5. With a ruler and Frixion pen mark lines for pockets and top stitch lines through all layers to make pockets for Rotary cutter, pens, scissors etc. My lines were 3" on centre, 3/4" and 1" . 3" for the rotary cutter 3/4" for pens and 1" for small scissors. If you did not want to sew, simply keep one large pocket with no small channel pockets, no top stitching required
6. Once the top stitching of the lines are done, put it in the hoop and tighten the screw to hold in place, glue excess fabric tight to back edge with a glue gun.
7. Place items to organize in your pocket and proudly display in your sewing/activity space and enjoy!
