2 pieces of fabric measuring 6 5/8" wide x 9 1/4" tall
2 pieces of fabric (for the front pockets) measuring 6 5/8" wide x 6 1/2" tall
2 pieces of flannel (I used fleece I had on hand) measuring 6 5/8" wide x 9 1/4" tall
A small piece of elastic -- I used about 5"
Okay, there's A LOT of pics! And I hope I can make this clear enough how I did it. If I get confusing please check out Parker House Love and/or Charm Stitch because they explained it beautifully!
I picked out my fabrics that I had on hand. I had pink fleece left over from a Christmas parade years ago and the colorful fabric I had bought intending to decorate burp cloths...yeah, never got around to that, lol.
Cut your fabric according to dimensions.
On the pockets, I folded over about an 1/8" and pressed, folded over another 1/8", pressed with iron, then stitched the edge. Repeat for second pocket.
Then I placed the main fabric and pocket fabric together (right sides up) and stitched down both sides of the JUST THE pocket. Do this for second main fabric and pocket. (Ick, am I making sense?)
I added my piece of elastic to the top center of a panel. Backstitched about 15 times so it wasn't going anywhere, lol.
Then I placed one of my pieces of fleece on top of my panel with the elastic attached. Right sides together. Stitch and when you open, it will look like the picture below. Also do this with the other pieces of fleece and pocket.
Then I put my pieces right sides together, stitched all the way around, leaving an opening in the fleece so I could turn my case right side out. Make sure your pockets line up!
The picture below shows that I left an opening in the bottom of the fleece. I turned my case right side in and then stitch the opening close.
And you get this long piece! Tuck the fleece into your case.
Finished piece! I love it! Not really my first choice of fabrics but I wanted to use something that I wasn't entirely in love with just in case I messed up but it's grown on me and I think I'll be using it for awhile =)
