Jute Web Heart Pocket

Don’t ya just love this stuff? I don’t think I have ever used it for its intended use, but when I find it during my junking journeys I just can’t pass it up.

For each heart side I cut two 7-inch long strips of the webbing. Why 7 inches? Glad you asked. I’m not sure if all webbing is created equal, so I doubled the width. This measurement will provide hearts as wide as they are tall. One end of each strip was rounded to shape the heart bumps.

Two strips were stitched together in an “L” shape for each heart side. My sewing machine makes loud squawking noses and beeps obnoxiously when I try to sew through thick or hard things. To eliminate the drama this causes, setting my machine to sew long straight stitches seemed to do the trick.

The two sides of the heart were layered together. A piece of old trim was inserted between the edges to create the handle, then I stitched around the sides. I left the top open.

I dug through my button collection and found two buttons to stitch to the pocket where the ends of the handles were stitched.

Fill it with a small bouquet of flowers, yummy chocolates, or something small and shiny for Valentine’s Day, or use it anytime of the year as an accent decoration. I’m considering making some with a heart or words stamped to the front, but for now I like the simple look.
