January Vintage Street Market

 Hi there!  I am back in January  to share with two little pockets I sewed (GASP!) using lots of VSM goodies.  It's been a learning process on use my sewing machine but I must admit there is something rewarding about completing a project with machine stitches.  I am still to scared to sew any clothing item but these small pockets are super simple and you can even hand stitch if you don't own a sewing machine.  So let's get started!
First, I used canvas that I cut into long rectangles and simple folded to create my pocket.  Yep, it's that easy.  I added pattern paper with a thicker weight because it makes the pocket more sturdy.  I used a die cut button with the word friend layered with a  vintage gold ribbon underneath.   I wrapped lace and twine around the pocket and tied it with a vintage button.  I made a little pennant using the ruler print and stapled the corner and  added a green flower.  I tucked a feather behind for added texture.  The last step is to embellish with pearl accents. around "friends".
The next pocket is the same concept.  Except I fussy cut a little girl image, punched a red foil border, and added a red ticket with the word "sweet".   I embellished with photo corners and a metal flower.
This is the inside of the pockets.   These would be great to tuck in a note, a piece of jewelry or candy if so inclined.
Supplies to make these pockets:
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired!
