Title pretty much says it all, lol, but I'll tell you anyhow... I can't throw anything away. I seriously can't. So here are all the pockets I've collected over the years from pants cut up for other projects and a ton of teeny weeny little scraps of denim etc that I thought were still just this side of garbage. I don't know what I'll ever do with these things, if they'll sell or I'll end up using them as wall paper but I'm just so happy to finally be rid of that box of random pockets I've been carting from house to house and across the country (it's been about nine years, ha ha!).




This one was given to our cousins as a house warming gift






I have 2 others that needed binding.

This one isn't finished.

What a great idea! It would be nice in a kid's room or craft room for storage!

A lovely collection of pockets CLM  Grin I think you've done a brilliant job of using them all up and making something very useful from them.

I was thinking they'd make such a fun item in a business, to take and leave random fun stuff, notes, coins, etc. I'd love an interactive exhibit to show them off. They won't fit at the library here, not enough wall space, but maybe a cafe or something. They are really fun, I can't keep my hands out of the pockets, lol.

What a wonderful use for all of those pockets!  I think it would make for great storage...it would also be fun to hide treats for the kids after they do a chore or get a good mark in school!
