There’s Something in My Pocket

I got the idea for making removable pockets once while putting on my choir robe.  It would be handy to have a pocket to hold money and what not, but I didn’t think they would allow me to do something permanent to the robe.

So here’s the solution.  I cut off the back pockets from a pair of jeans and decorated them with trim from a shirt I got years ago from a nearby discount store.  The shirt was only 50 cents and cuter without the trim, so no loss.

Here’s what makes them removable.  I sewed on a pinback to each pocket.  I can pin them on to just about anything I want, then remove or move them around whenever and however I want.  Pretty nifty right?

Here’s the updated list:
  • hangers
  • bed
  • mirror
  • dresser
  • skirt
  • pocket
  • lamp
  • night stand
  • wardrobe
  • rug
  • framed art
  • curtains
Six down, six to go.  Now back to the miniatures.
