so I made it for Tally and now they are closing or changing hands...
so now it is MINE all MINE! LOL mwhahahah!
And I am GIVING away this CADDY!!!!!! The one you see here could be yours!
This is SO easy to make. You can get fancy if your a great quilter and want to iron it and make it perfect...that is great! But I will show you my easy peasy shortcut sewer version. I suggest making the pockets slightly more shallow, but I like my deep pocktes, because I hate scissors falling out and I have some big scissors!
First you will need 1 yard of fabric (If you are doing 2 different colors, then 1/2 yard of each) and a large remnant of fleece.(around 20" by 30") Or some batting.
Step 1. Cut your fabric into 20" by 30" pieces
I love using my old fleece remnants for this. I used some old Halloween fleece I had used a few years ago (I got it for 1.00 a yard!)
I cute the fleece slightly smaller.
Step 2. Piece it together inside out and sew the sides and bottom together leaving the top wide open.
You CAN put the fleece/batting in after and quilt it. OR if your like me, I just put it in and sew it in to the seams, but be careful to only sew the fleece in a tiny bit because you don't want bulky seams.
Step 3. Turn right side sew a 1/8 inch seam along sides and bottom (Stop 1/2 inch short on both sides of the top so you have room to fold in and close the top)
Step 5. Fold bottom up from 4" to 7" and pin, you CAN make this shorter if you want....even 3" is enough. But I like to put my handy dandy Sewing scissors inside so I like mine deep.
Step 6. Pin where you would like the pockets and sew your pocket seams.
Do you want to win this caddy?
Well leave a comment and I will randomly draw a name on Friday!
