Soap pocket ,tutorial
Cut a piece of fabric, I used chintz.
5 x 20 Fold into three, 4 inches and 5.5"
Sew first row stitching along each side to hold together.
Raw edges will be showing.
Assemble the trims as shown.
I printed French Laundry sign from the calendar I made last year.
Cut a small doily into three and place as shown, note one piece is glued to the bottom of a tag.
Thanks to Rhonda for that.
Make the patch and sew to the top .
Stitch around all sides of pocket again.
Lace edging is nice along both top, and pocket.
Add a button to the tag.
Stitch two pieces of twine to top for a hanger.
Also sew some seam binding to pocket sides. Let them dangle.
Catch the tag string on the inside of the pocket and add a few stitches to hold the doily , if needed.
Above is another version. Put soap or hand cream inside the pockets.
Pretty cool gift.
Last Tutorial for a while.
