Pockets and More Pockets

This is a pocket I bought in SW China. I’ve been practicing using it and it has worked well. The needle holder is on the top. I watched Yoshiko Wada and Ana Lisa Hedstrom’s lecture this afternoon and got inspired to make pockets. I had planned to post them as little purses as good project ideas. Inspiration made them all into pockets for my winter pocktless pants.


This was a little bag I bought in Japan. Can you see the ikat horses? I first got the idea to make a pocket when I noticed it on my work table this afternoon. The long loop is a good length so it hangs well when sitting, too.


This pocket was a bag from India. So simple.


This is a favorite little bag from Uzbekistan. Pieces of their traditional ikat and card weaving. I will enjoy using it as a pocket I know because I’ve always loved it.


I bought this from our White Elephant sale—It’s from Guatemala.


This bag is from Japan—hand spun Tsmugi silk.

  1. I’m inspired! Love how little bits of this and that (batik scraps too precious to trash, 4″ braid remnant, one of a kind beads – you get the idea) come together to tell the most intriguing story, in this case pockets. Great stuff, Peggy!!
