my handsewn pocket fitted :)*pics*

here is my first attempt at making a pocket fitted. i am surprised how easy it was considering i dont sew. hand sewing was a pain because i used an old bath towel. the inner is flannel. i thought i could use it for night time. ill make one more then after that ill more then likely use just flannel or thinner dish towel material.

Good job! I bet it feels really good to make them! (Says the girl who can't figure out how to thread a machine...)

Great job! And kudos to you for handsewing it! I wish you lived by me because threading a machine is really pretty simple and I'd definately show you how! Maybe, you could try googling the instruction booklet for your machine (or even just a pic tutorial on how to thread a machine in general)-if you so feel inclined to.

Good job!

If you feel brave, get our your sewing machine and do some Googling for info, you might be surprised at what you can learn from the internet

Great job =) I learned how to use my machine from a combo of just trying stuff blindly and watching YouTube videos.

That looks awesome. I like the color combo and putting dark on the inside is a great idea too.

I made a prefold diaper into a fitted using on online tutorial and that took a couple of hours, but I was pretty impressed at how trim it is.

Please watch a youtube video on how to thread your machine! It will take so much less time to thread a machine and sew a fitted than doing it by hand. I would not have the patience to do it by hand.... says the girl with too many sewing machines
