Still talkin' about pockets


I could stuff a lot of eggs in this pocket. In fact I might be able to fit in the entire hen.


Natalie Chanin corset tank with self-drafted western yoke

I have made several things inspired by the Alabama Stitch Book. When I looked back through my photos I only managed to come up with the circle wrap skirt and the western corset. I did not use the slow stitch method. On both of these occasions I stitched the applique by machine. I am a huge fan of stitching by hand. In fact I find myself gravitating toward a project that I can complete from the porch.
I feel a need to slow everything down just a bit, and breathe.

Big pockets are a good thing. Love the red accents

Nice job on that reverse applique. And the yoke on the tank looks fantastic!

Thank you for introducing us to the Alabama Stitch Book - what a lovely inspiration! Also, thank you for providing a picture of that great skirt with the wonderful pocket. It's so cute that it's making me want to find a way to put huge, useful pockets on all my skirts.

Loved catching up with your blog...always an inspiration. Got my eye on a pattern sale, desperately need a hen holding/egg gathering/milkmaid apron :0)

Have a great day, Lynea
