A Stitch in Time Pockets

Picture heavy post....
I am at last able to show you the 2 stitching pockets I made for a swap. The group is over on facebook, UK&Ireland Swap Group. The Stitch in Time Pocket Swap was posted and I thought I would join in. Now my swap partner has received them I can publish the photos.

                                       Pocket One

The pockets had to be no smaller that 7" x 5", you were allowed to make them larger if you wish.They also had to have at least 2 inner pockets to hold the tags and sewing pieces.

Pocket Two

These are the large Tags, 3 for each inner pocket, all with a sewing theme.Each one was also stamped with a sewing image on the reverse.

 These are the 6 small Tags, again 3 for each inner pocket and stamped on the reverse.

These are the sewing themed goodies that went in to the inside pockets, by the time I had finished,the pockets were virtually bursting at the seams,so I made some punched holes down the sides of each pocket and tied mini bows to ensure they would stay strong enough for the goodies....unfortunately I didn't think to take photos of the pocket once they were filled...which was a shame as the little ribbon bows looked so pretty.

My swap partner was pleased with them,which was a relief as this was my first go at making these....I have in turn received hers and they were say I was over the moon would be an understatement.
