It sounds like you work in a nice school!  When I go back to the classroom I think I'll do a better job organizing parents to help out with things like this. 

For now I'll be one of those sewing mom volunteers.

I think I'm going to make two for the (kitchen) chairs my kids use for homework!  It will be a great storage spot.  Thanks for the idea.

PS:  Yes, I do think that you should try to get parent volunteer sewers.

Thanks for all of the compliments.  I'm imagining the room will look cute with all of these on the chairs.  (When they get done, that is...)

I'll probably make one for my desk chair, but there's not a chance that my desk will be any cleaner because of it!!! Wink

The school is great, you're right, and since last night when I realized that after two more hours of sewing I will have 12 done I have decided to send out an email as soon as I am sure that the back to school packet has gotten to them.  It was mailed Tuesday, so I think I'm in the clear.  I just want to make sure they got the class lists before I start begging for help.  Smiley

Alright, so half a year down and the chair pockets are going strong.  Just thought I'd share with you how they look in the room and how well they are holding up.  There is only one where the fabric is coming out of the bias tape, and I am assuming that I simply did not make sure the fabric was tucked in correctly in the first place.  I plan on fixing it soon.
The parents and I both noticed how much the room brightened up with the chairs covered.  It looks really nice.
The students put only their binders (brought to and from school daily) and their DEAR books in the pockets.
As you can see, most of the nametags are long gone.  I should have used a wider ribbon and they would not have come untied so frequently.  Other than that, I have no complaints about the original design and am very happy to have them in my room!
Hope you enjoy!

OK, I simply *must* know what you do with the bathtub!

And now that I see the photos of the classroom, I don't have to wonder what the pockets are for anymore.  Silly me, I figured your students would sit at the sort of desks that had storage inside under a flip-up top.
