Playing around with pockets


With no pressing need to go anywhere or do anything much this week has given me a bit of time to explore a new pocket idea.
I was loving this fabric as pockets on a ticking stripe skirt a little while ago, but ran out of the stripe.
I've been wanting to try one big patch pocket on a skirt for a while, so this seemed like a good way to make use of my fabric, and try something new as well!
First try resulted in a pocket a little bit too small, but I'm happy with the proportions of this one.
Now I just need to make a couple more to take to market this Saturday!
It seems I'm very good at giving myself things to do....

I love the pocket!
I think it adds a whole new look to a skirt. Bet you sell loads.
