Sewing these chair pockets is so much fun... and fast and easy too! This time I used home decor weight fabric to streamline my chair pocket sewing pattern even more. The chair pockets fit over the back of a classroom chair and have two clever pockets for school materials. I've also seen these called seat sacks online.
To convince you how easy this sewing project is, my friend came over to help, and she had never sewn before, lol!
In 2 days we made 20 chair pockets, can you believe that? Like I mentioned above, using home decor weight fabric made the pockets sturdy without using the binding that I put on the original chair pocket sewing pattern. I think they look cuter this way too. I was so fortunate to find all this designer-quality star fabric at the thrift store!
Incidentally, the chair pockets fit perfectly on my sewing room chairs too. Maybe I need to sew a couple for myself, what do you think?
So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
Our Monthly Mini Quilt Pattern this month is a new classic! I'm so in love with the Ladybug Liberty Mini Quilt that was designed for us by Fat Quarter Shop! Fat Quarter Shop is also giving away a $50 Gift Certificate with this month's free mini quilt pattern...
I LOVE to use the walking foot on my sewing machine (also known as an even-feed foot). I've gotten questions over the years about why I am using it for one project or another. So here's the (kind-of) long version if you want me to share all... Then I'll list the situations where I like to use it most.
Merry Christmas SewCanShe fans! I've been saving a present for you! Last year when I was putting my proposal together for Just For You, I wrote this Travel Jewelry Case Pattern. We figured out a few months later that it wasn't going to fit in the book, so I decided to save it for Christmas. And Christmas is here!
I'm so excited to finally share the Zippie Clippie pattern with you... this pouch has so many purposes that I'll never be able to count them all. Clip one on a backpack with pencils and school supplies. Clip another to your bag to hold your phone. Then sew another to hold your hand sewing kit while on road trips!
The Variable Star is a classic quilt block that has been around for over 100 years. It has also been called the Sawtooth Star and the Evening Star. This fun block lends itself to so many versions. Since the center is a square, you can fill that square with patchwork, fussy cut fabric, or more stars (like I did)!
