Day 291/365: Simple Little Pocket Bag

Leave a comment

The other day, one of my co-workers asked me if I could sew a small bag for her.  She showed me a piece of paper that she’d cut and folded in half.  “Like this, like a little pocket,” she said.

I took the paper home and today I made the little bag for her.  It actually took me two tries; the first one came out a lot smaller and I forgot to fold the hem under twice.  On my second try, I made sure to add an inch when I cut the fabric, along with a couple other changes.  The finished pocket turned out a lot better than I expected.  Hopefully, my co-worker will think so, too.
