Pal Pocket pillow runner

First..
let me just chat a little about something I'm passionate about.
That would be crafting the simple way!
For those of you who have been following me..then you probably already know..
I'm all about finding short cuts and Yes,
I'm always looking for the EASY way out!!
Some may call it Lazy..but I call it..
Semi-handmade
(The busy Mom's way)
"sew"
Email me your semi -handmade crafts..maybe we can have a link party here!
In the mean time..I will show you one of mine. :)
{ Pal pocket pillow runner}
made from felt.
(I consider anything made with felt semi-handmade!)
The magic fabric that makes everything easier!!
Right :)

I used 1/2 yard felt. White thread, rick rack, and a fabric scrap(optional)

1. Cut felt strip 72in. X 14 in.
2. Embellish one end of the felt for the pocket. (sew or fabric glue )
The other end will tuck under the mattress.
(i sewed on rick rack and another little pocket)
3. Flip up the end and create the pocket size of your choice.
4.Sew the two sides together.
5. Email me if my directions don't make ANY sense! buffyrobison@yahoo.com

I have to learn how to sew! You are killing me! I LOVE it!

I like to call my cooking "semi-homemade"! Its the best way to be a mother and have some sanity (I said some, not all) HA! Love it B.Jane!

Awesome idea and tutorial. I just made three-one for each of my girls for Christmas. Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful, love the idea! Congrats!

Such a cute project. My granddaughter has her Whimsby bunny that would fit perfectly. Could I ask a question? Is there a pocket on both ends of the felt under the mattress, or just the one end? It appears there is only one, but thought I would ask. Thanks for the idea.

what a great idea. I am putting it on my 'to do' list and may make it adult and put a pocket on both sides for our own reading material!

Cindy Brown & Bob Lanford said...

Love this idea! Making them for the guest room at the ranch embroidered with Lazy Bones Ranch. Will include a reading light and a few other items helpful to our adult family and friends who visit. Then for the grandchildren's bunk rooms. Will have reading lights, books, etc.

This is so cute. Can you think of a way to have this work with a crib?

Shirley said...

OMG! This is adorable and perfect for the transition from crib to a grownup bed. Absolutely love it!!!

You don't need to sew. They have awesome glue that works just as well as thread! It's quick and easy and holds up in the washer!!

Teri said...

I just made one of these in about 15 minutes!! SO easy and cute!! I used some iron on patches with it. Just darling! Can't wait to give it to my nephew and make about a billion more!!

Deborah Jennings said...

Oh, I love this! I am going to have to make several. LOL We have, are you ready for it . . . 15 grandchildren. But I also want to make one for my MIL and of course for myself and hubby's bed.

Just made a two-sided one for our books and glasses that stays in place via ties to our slatted headboard (like a dining room chair cushion).
