Candy Cane Treat Pockets
Yeah! Today I'm sharing my 1st project using the adorable Candy Cane Lane fabric from Stampin' Up!- nostalgic and vintage charm:)
I sat down one evening once our little Ms were asleep and sewed up these little treat pockets:
They're pretty adorable, if I do say so myself and were a blast to make as they came together so quickly!
And they're easy! In an hour I had 8 treat pockets cut out & sewn up, ready for something sweet:)
I took 2 of the striped fat quarters and cut each into 4 rectangles (pre wash & iron for best results!). Fold them so the raw edges match (top & sides) and sew up both long sides- the bottom should be seamless.
The pinking shears made quick work of the edges adding an extra little something and just fold over the top! I think I will add a button and maybe a Velcro dot too though...
I originally made these to hold Christmas goodies but have since decided to stash them for Jonah's next birthday (a ways off, I know!)- he's having a vintage ice cream parlor theme (can't wait!) and these will be perfect for housing goodies to send home with guests:)
Let me know if you have any questions- great beginner sewing project!
