Valentine Pennie Pockets
Yesterday, I made more items for the hospital auxiliary Valentine's Sale.
I originally saw the pennie pockets here before Christmas, saved the pattern, but quickly forgot about them until I saw them mentioned again on Tipnut.
Tipnut linked to the pattern on the Moda Bake Shop. The pattern is easy to follow and the pockets come together quickly. I was able to cut and make the eight pockets in two and a half hours with a couple of breaks to fill my mug with hot tea. I made a prototype to make sure I understood the pattern. The others were much easier to make.
I am not a fan of yo-yos, so I will embellish the prairie points with buttons instead. For the sale, I will fill the bags with candy.
**Tip** baste the prairie points across the cut edge to keep the edges even and to prevent migration once it is pinned on the pocket front.
