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.
The Fold and Stitch Wallet has two card slots and a money pocket on the inside.
There's a small coin pocket on the outside. Both the money pocket and the coin pocket have a velcro closure.
It's a great way to use up scraps and the wallet is a super little gift. This is exactly the same wallet, I'll just be showing you how to make it with your own fabric. And I've given instructions for using snap-setter snaps (such as Kam Snaps) instead of sew-on snaps. But you can still sew on snaps if you want. Or no snaps at all. :)
This past Saturday morning I woke up needing to sew a quick birthday present for my daughter's friend. Chloe was getting ready for a princess birthday party. We already had a small gift, but my daughter wanted me to make a personalized bag for her to bring that gift in.
I'm so excited to share this tutorial with you because for a couple of years now my friend Sarah and I have been making wrist strap keychains for our own use (they are so handy!), for friends, for teacher gifts, and even for craft fairs.
Someone I totally admire has been sewing my #10 Caddy Pattern…check out her amazing work!
This was the most fun I've had this year! I loved the challenge of sewing up a new project with only a picture to refer to. You voted for me to sew and write a tutorial for the bed pockets in this picture... so here it is.
Let's face it, sometimes moms forget to accessorize. Well, this infinity scarf made with just a yard of soft cotton voile is an easy accessory that you can wear anywhere. And it has fine french seams and a neat 1/4'' hem. Lovely!
