20 Things to Sew With Pockets – all free!


There’s something that is happening to me as I grow older… I LOVE pockets! Probably because I’m less likely to lose something if I can put it in a pocket. 🙂

Side story: my favorite pants are yoga capris that have pockets in the legs! I would wear them every day and everywhere if I could because when I have them on I never lose my phone – it’s in my leg pocket, he he!
