I was provided with Waverly material for this post, but all opinions and ideas are 100% my own.
I have lots of FUN to share with you today, friends! First of all, did you know that September is National Sewing Month? How many of my friends out there are sew-ers? I’m definitely not a pro, but I dabble in the realm of sewing. Since September is the month of sewing, I thought I would share a project I sewed. A little something to allow for more organization in our school/craft room using Wavlery fabric from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores! Check out the Floral Chair Pocket I made…
Don’t you LOVE the fabric?! I love the colors and the floral pattern. It’s happy, don’t you think?
I added trim and several felt flowers too…because let’s be honest, I LOVE to embellish.
I love how the chair pocket provides extra storage for my daughter’s homeschool books and folders. It really clears up the work space. I always wanted to make these for the chairs in my classroom when I was an elementary school teacher, but as you can guess, as a teacher I just didn’t have the time to make 30+ of them. I am SO excited I was finally able to make one for at home. You can check out the tutorial I adapted for my own chair HERE.
Are you ready for the rest of the fun news? JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and Waverly are teaming up to celebrate Waverly’s 90th Anniversary with a Waverize It! Facebook challenge!
