Instructions are as follows: 1: Cut one each of an interior and exterior piece of fabric measuring 4 3/8" x 6" each. I used a different fabric for the interior. Helps keep things straight and adds some contrast. Cut two pocket pieces of fabric (interior or exterior choice, up to you, but they should match) measuring 4 3/8" x 5". Grain on both cuts should be running along the long side. Cut one piece of elastic 4 3/8" wide. If adding the toggle clasp, cut a piece of interior fabric 2" x 1.5". 2. Fold pocket pieces in half right sides together, so the short sides are open to the top, press. Sew a straight stitch using a 1/4" seam on two of the open sides, so a short side remains open. Cut corners and turn, pressing the open end's remaining seam tucked into the pocket to appear finished. Repeat with other pocket and put aside (top stitching later will close the open end). 3. For the toggle tab, press 1/8" on either end of the 2" side so then fold in half wrong sides together and press.

3. (continued) Sew along the open edge as close to the edge as possible. The top and bottom will be raw. Place piece through clasp and baste using your longest stitch 1/8" from raw edge to close the loop. 4. Align elastic 1" down from right side of exterior fabric; on the opposite end, align bottom edge of clasp loop 1" up from bottom. Be sure the toggle clasp is facing IN towards the center of your piece. (see photo) Stitch using a 1/4" seam allowance being sure to back tack at each end and leave 1.5-2" unstitched to turn the piece inside out. I like to leave my opening along one long side about 2/3 down so that all of my corners are stitched. When running over the elastic and toggle loops, backstitch once over them to reinforce. Trim corners and turn out. Make sure elastic is on the exterior side of main body. 5. Place the pockets on the interior side aligning one to the top and one to the bottom so that there is a gap in the middle showing the interior fabric. Pin.

6. Topstitch 1/8" from edge all around, making sure all layers are secured. Press and you're done! Enjoy!
