Grain Sack Wall Pockets on Barn Wood

 I know that are tons of fellow grain sack lovers out there, so I hope you won’t groan that I’m sharing another grain sack style project again today.

After making a seat cover for an antique chair, I still had lots of fabric left over, and I was itching to come up with more projects to use it on.

I whipped up these little pockets, and added the same typography that I used on the chair (printable here).
I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d do with them, but I got a great piece of old wood at an antique store last weekend, so I cut a section off it and attached them, so they could be used as wall pockets.  They look like they are hanging from the screws, but I actually used a staple gun to attach them to the wood, so they won’t go cock-eyed when things are put inside of them.

I made a 4th pocket and added the same wreath image that I used on the grain sack pillow I made (printable here), and attached it to the remaining wood piece.  I tucked dried baby’s breath in it, but a small juice glass fits inside them, so you could put some water in them and put fresh-cut flowers in them as well.  I added a rusty wire hanger to this one.
If you want to make your own, just cut out a rectangle of fabric in the size desired.  Make a hem across the 2 shorter ends, and fold it over, with right sides facing, then sew the side seams closed.  Turn it right side and and cut another strip of fabric for the hanger.  Fold the strip in half lengthwise, and sew a 1/4″ seam, then turn it right side out.  Stitch it to the inside of the back of the pocket.   I press my seams open with an iron as I go, so the seams lay nicely flat and finished.
Blessings,

    I LOVE this idea of the grain sack pockets on wood. However, I wonder how you staples them to the wood without the staples showing??? I never get tired of new ideas making things out of grain sack material. Keep them coming.

  11. This is so pretty, maybe I’ll make it as a gift for myself. We bloggers make so much we might as well treat ourselves.
