This beautiful wall pocket just pulls at my heart. I'll be making more than one to use at the cottage where we treasure and protect the birch trees around us.
Sometimes it’s fun to take a break from toppers and candle mats. Use both your machine and hand stitching skills to make this unique 12″ x 6.6″ wall pocket that can hold anything from seasonal flowers to your sewing ‘utensils’! Use your machine, regular sewing thread, and wool felt to create a faux birch bark look OR use Bosal In-R-Foam lining, felted woven wool and your favorite applique techniques to make it as modern or primitive as you like! This is a fairly straightforward pattern, but it will appeal to those of you who are willing to involve yourselves with the use of larger needles, heavier threads/yarns, and perhaps an awl or possibly a small pliers to help with stitching through heavier layers. These pockets are wonderfully lightweight, don’t break, and can easily be ‘customized.’ They make great housewarming and seasonal gifts.
