A tutorial on how to make an easy pocket for Svetlanacat's quilt.

Some folks have expressed an interest in being involved with the pocket quilt, but felt they lacked the ability. This is a very fast and easy way to make a pocket. This is a little clunky, so it's behind a cut.

First, a trip to the craft store to purchase supplies. They included: two pockets, several small appliques, and lace. These pockets are iron on, so make sure you have some squares of fabric ready. Total cost $15 plus tax

Next lay out your initial design -

Now, to the iron. Yes, you have to iron these, so find yours, go to a friend or drop into your local laundry mat and ask to use theirs for a moment. It will need to be set on cotton, so make use the backing fabric and stand the heat.

I wanted to do a bit more, so I used some fabric paint that I had on hand. This step is up to you.


Total time was about twenty minutes, not counting shopping for supplies.

These are very simple pockets, but are just an example to show you how easy it can be. Now these pockets can be cut out and ready to be sent to Glenna for appliqueing onto fabric.
