Kind of winged it! »
InstructionsI didn't use a pattern for this. It was fun for exactly that reason. I actually have a whole series of Pocket Monsters and each one is completely different. Some of them have pockets that still work and can hold or hide things and, some have pockets that have been sewn down. Basically, just cut out some fusible webbing, attach it to fabric and go wild!
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Mod, Funky, Cute, Whimsical, Retro / Vintage, Hipster, Geeky, Casual, Eco-Friendly
One upcycled shirt pocket, fusible webbing, cotton thread, embroidery thread, cotton batting, flannel backing.
What was your inspiration?
A friend of mine gave me a huge amount of pockets that she had cut out from shirts she used as fabric. In the interest of finding something fun to do with all of these pockets...Pocket Mosters was born!
What are you most proud of?
Honestly, I think I'm most proud of having come up with a series of original creations that are fun to look at and fun to make. I truly loved making every one of them, and I'm sure more are to come! Eventually, I'll be selling them on etsy, I guess...if I can stop giving them to friends and family!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Best advice for this project? HAVE FUN! Use you imagination. Just grab a pocket, and attach some fusiible webbing to some fabric and cut and iron and embellish as much or as little as you would like. It's a fantastically fun project and really doesn't require much work or time (unless you want it to!)
