What I used:
- 2 back pockets from old jeans – cut leaving at least 1/4″ around each pocket (ideally 2 or 3″)
- Fabric strip 5″ x the width of your two pockets when sewn together
- Length of Ribbon
- Fabric Scraps for embellishment (optional)
- Iron on Interfacing (heavy/firm)
A bedside pocket organzier of course needs…you guessed it….pockets.
So let’s start there.
I was cutting up multiple pairs of old jeans to make a denim quilt and I didn’t know what I would do with the rest of the jeans so I just cut out each back pocket and set them aside.
I was sensible enough to leave about 2″ all the way around the actual pocket, in some cases more, to make sure that whatever I decided to do I had enough seam allowance to sew with them!
