Pretty Petaloo Pocket

Hello again, friends of CropStop!  It’s Karen Letchworth here today sharing a Pretty Petaloo Pocket I created using a simple kraft paper lunch bag.  It’s VERY easy to do.  You simply fold the lunch bag half way up, add a piece of patterned paper, and machine stitch it down – creating a pocket.   Now, you can tuck in a gift card, note, photo, cash, etc.


Once I had created my pocket, I added a half doily, some words using a rub-on (“for”) and die-cut (“you”), a little tag, and then the GORGEOUS bow using some navy blue tulle, baker’s twine, and lovely Petaloo Sugared Berries in Red, tied with Natural Burlap String. To the top right, I also added a sweet little  Tim Holtz Paper Clip to give my project a feminine touch.


These sweet little pockets are very easy to create, and are a great way to make something special when giving a small gift.  CropStop has everything you could possibly want to help make your cards and projects look amazing.  I hope you will stop by to check out all the wonderful products carried at CropStop, and then play along in the current challenge.

  1. Karen, this is just gorgeous! you say this is easy, but you forget that there are some of us in the crafty world who are sewing challenged. 😉 even my sewing machine repair man says he has never seen a machine that hates anyone the way mine hates me…. so we have come to an agreement where I don’t go near it, and it stays quite happy!

    you have added so many beautiful elements to your project! I think I need to get some of those cutey little clips. and of course the Petaloo berries are lush! 🙂

    thanks for the wonderful inspiration, as always!
