Idea for Patchwork or Needlework Sample. Create Wearable Pocket
So annoying when you are chasing around, phone rings, stops before you reach it or you want to read something quickly and glasses are in another part of building. For convenience and practical working I need to have mobile and landline phone, plus glasses and handkerchief all in one place without having to search.
Clothes with pockets never seem to work and light purses or bags can be cumbersome around the neck.
Looking for a practical use for a patchwork sample created recently, a wearable pocket was a clear winner.
Easy to make using no fraying fabric. I used a light nylon mesh. Cut a rectangle double the size of needlework. Allow extra around the edges and for seams. Cut long strip for tie, enough to go around your waist and to make a bow. I folded tie length in half.
