DH loves his new bedside pocket! It was a necessity for him since his side of the bed is against the wall (no nightstand!) and he must have a place for his books and the all important remote. The inspiration was from In Stitches and Simple Sewing (a pattern can be found in both books); however, I was feeling quite impatient so I just looked at their pictures and made up my own pattern as I went (some days you just don't want to read a pattern or follow directions)! The shamrock fabric was chosen for my DH's love of Notre Dame, not because it was finished on St. Patrick's Day...though what a coincidence! The bottom picture is what it looks like on the bed when the bed is made (our sleigh bed does not look good with a dust ruffle).
Next sewing project...perhaps a Black Apple Doll?
