These charming hanging pockets are handy just about anywhere around the house for storing little things that are easy to lose. Hang one on a doorknob or hook to provide a pretty accent as well as easy storage.
Stiff interfacing (Pellon 809 Décor-Bond) allows them to hold their shape. That makes it easy to drop things into the pockets and to retrieve them.
Choose beautiful fabrics, or even piece a section of patchwork to create a pocket from. Since they’re reversible, choose two fabrics that work nicely together. The envelop shape is very easy to put together, starting with 16 1/2″ fabric squares.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
