Supplies List : (includes affiliate links for your convenience)

ticking fabric (you’ll need less than 1/4 yard per wall pocket)

pinking scissors

regular scissors

iron-on adhesive

fabric hole punch or awl

3.97 mm eyelet fastener kit (these are very inexpensive!)  Also known as grommets, if that’s a term more familiar to you.

scrap wire



Fold a piece of 8-1/2 x11″ paper in half lengthwise to use as a pattern.  Pin pattern to your chosen fabric (heavier weight works best) and cut it out.

Fold the fabric in half lengthwise and iron the fold in the center.

Cut 3 strips of iron-on adhesive.  On the wrong side of the fabric, place one inside the fold, one on the long open edge and one at the bottom edge.  Iron for 2-3 seconds, let the paper cool, then remove the paper backing.

Fold the fabric and iron for another 8 seconds to seal the adhesive.

Use pinking scissors to trim around all 4 edges.  Pinking the edge keeps the fabric from fraying.

Punch holes at the top of both sides of the pocket.

If you don’t have a fabric hole punch, clip a very small X into the fabric on both sides.

The finished pocket makes a great gift.  Fill it with dried or faux flowers, or pens and a notepad, or kitchen utensils.

You can make them larger or smaller, depending on what you want to put in them.

  2. How cute is that? I love no sew projects!

  3. This little wall pocket is super cute! I love the fabric, perfect for the farmhouse style. And it’s a no sew, can’t get any better then that ?

  4. I love it Angie! You should put these in your shop!

  5. Karen Robbins says

    What a cute idea! I love the ticking fabric and also the ones made in the grain sack fabric. I love all of your ideas. I plan to make some of these and I agree they would be a great item for your shop.

  6. Very cute. How smart. I love it! I love it on the board too! Thanks for the tutorial.
    Happy Fall!

  7. Love this! Especially on the board! Very clever! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Are you surprised if a reader finds ways to doll up their pocket from looking at your adorable pocket? This is such simple decorative idea for anybody to take off with it by adding other embellishments. You make things look so easy, your projects always turn out so cute. Imagine you sell a lot of your cute ideas.
    Been long time since have used eyelets but think is most likely best way to add wire handle for pocket. Think using pinking shears gives pocket nice finished edge besides preventing raveling. Don’t know what would do without my handy pinking shears. Think will be having great time making some of these pockets, makes cute gift bag.
    How is your Mom doing? Hope she will recover well so she can continue on with life, enjoying her loving family.
    Enjoy rest of week
