pockets!

When I try on my robe, my hands automatically reach for what was not there…until today!

Two pockets

I cut the pockets out of the well-loved but worn-out pants and pinned them into place. Then stitched them in with a back stitch that will hopefully have some strength to it.

Pocket pinned in place

I’m going to have to think about the entry to the pocket. The scallop shape is wrong. It should be a straight slit, I think. I may have to piece in an extension there.

A nice rhythm: pin something in place during the day, then stitch it down over tea the following morning.

I may be starting a baby-sized quilt because following in Jude’s footsteps is so irresistible.

    Great pocket addition. I can tell by looking that I would miss those pants! But how can anyone wear a robe without pockets?

      I really miss those pants, but they were too worn and faded for me to wear. The pockets are a huge plus for the robe!
