The Pocket

Next comes the pocket....remember  your pocket can be any shape you want.  What we did is just a suggestion.

Look at the template and you will notice two sets of lines.  The outside line is the shape we used to form our pocket.  The dashed line is for the lining.


Center the template behind the stitched pocket.



Finger press the outside edges to achieve desired shape.  Then trim linen 1/2 inch out from the fold lines.



Fold trimmed linen to the back and secure corner folds with a couple of stitches...makes everything nice and tidy.



Use dash lines on the template to cut the felt lining.  Whipstitch into place.


Place the pocket on the gray base felt.  Remember to leave the bottom four inches open for the pocket.  A line of pins for loose basting stitch will help you visualize the placement area.


Sew to the felt....catch the outside linen...just a tiny thread.  Remember to leave the top open to store your goodies inside.

Next piece on our Stitcher's Mat will be the pin cushion....
