My latest sewing project was to make chair pockets for an elementary school classroom. They turned out so cute! I basically ended up with a long strip of fabric folded into an "S". The sides are then serged and it turns out to be a pocket that slides over the back of a chair. We embellished them with an additional pocket on the pocket in a patterned material. SO cute and so useful! The kids can now clear off their tables and yet still have everything they need nearby. I'm not much of a seamstress but serging, I can do! And it's so much fun to make a project that's really going to get used and enjoyed.
I guess that's why I like knitting so much. The wrist warmers, headbands, and scarves I make are so loved, so appreciated that I can't help but feel happy when I think about it!
