Nooks and Crannies

Here are a slew of images of stitched-on pockets from my two recent books.  The last three are totally new ideas I had the other day, making pockets out of page extensions.  You can make a pocket out of anything ~ just stitch (or glue) around three edges and leave the top open.  Or stitch two edges of a corner-mounted pocket and leave the diagonal edge open.

Have a great weekend.  xo

Pockets are clever and creative additions. I really like the time one with the dictionary page underneath. Your stamps - Altered Book and Handmade Book - are fun...

It's so interesting to see all these different pockets. My favourite is the checked fabric on the green.

The irregular shapes work surprisingly well - didn't think I would like them but I love them!

Of course I love whatever you do Connie!
But, I especially love the uneven, crooked, and
maybe fabric pockets,
As always your sense of color is exquisite. Wow!

I love pockets in books and your are no exception.

I love your pockets and all the patterns. The organic shapes of some of the pockets are a relaxation to me. Never occurred to me to be so loose with a pocket! Wonderfully fun, Connie! Thanks for sharing.
