Love Letter Pockets

from EllyLdesign
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Love Letter Pockets
Love Letter Pockets

Love Letter Pockets

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Just straight machine-sewing: easy-peasy

Pattern Description:

Celebrate a special little one with a simple stitching and fresh style! Spell the name on 5" x 8" pockets you can slide onto a yardstick or rope, branch or dowel, curtain rod or fancy hanger. Can't you see this hanging above the changing table, so teething rings, pacifiers, powder or cream are in easy reach? Swagged over the new "big bed" to ease a transition? Or draped at the birthday party to hold cards and gift certificates? You just know it'll be treasured for years.

Match the colors in the room where it'll hang! No-fail how-to's, even for beginners: 6 pages, with 20 photos, so you can probably make this just by looking at the pictures. You'll also get actual-size patterns for 4" block letters. Oh--just got word of another new baby: better whip up another pocket banner! How 'bout you?

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Each pocket measures 5" x 8"


  • Just one fat-eighth (9" x 11" rectangle) of print cotton fabric and flannel plus scraps for each lettered pocket, a felt square

You Will Also Need:

  • Bits of ribbon, buttons, & rickrack
