Craft an Easy Chair Pocket

Craft Chair Pocket

This easy chair pocket project is great for an at-home study space or the entire classroom. You will need fabric that is the height of the back of the chair and three times the width of the back, plus an extra 2 inches for sewing space. You will also need felt, a threaded sewing machine, scissors, ribbons and/or buttons.

The sewing only involves three straight lines so even beginners can do this project. Here's how:

– Fold one-third of the fabric over and sew across the bottom.

– Fold the other one-third over like a pamphlet and sew up the two sides. Looking down from the top you can see into the pocket. If you want the pocket to be deeper, that third of the fabric needs to be a little bit longer and gathered than the last third when you sew up the sides.

– Add your additions and decorations, such as die-cut shapes, ribbons or buttons. (Fabric glue works great with felt.)

– Help those kiddos get organized and have a great year!
