Pocket Favors

Apr 15, 2011

These Pock­et Favors are per­fect to hold all kinds of items to hand out at bridal or baby show­ers or birth­day par­ties… real­ly these are great for any hol­i­day or spe­cial occa­sion. A group sit­ting in a bowl wait­ing to be hand­ed out would look real­ly cute. Espe­cial­ly, if they are all done in dif­fer­ent but coor­di­nat­ing papers.

Sup­plies Used: TP Roll, Jen­ni Bowl­in Pat­terned Paper, Scal­lop Scis­sors, Glue Stick Adhe­sive, Sewing Machine, Cream Thread


Apply a glue stick type adhe­sive onto the back of your pat­terned paper and cov­er the TP roll with pat­terned paper. I used Jen­ni Bowl­in’s 4″ pat­terned paper so I need­ed 2 sheets.

Using a sewing machine  and cream or white thread, stitch the end of the TP roll as shown above.

Now here is the tricky part for me to explain. The left end of the TP roll is what you sewed first, the one on the right is the one you will need to sew. BUT first fill it with the items you want to have inside. After you fill the roll with your items, hold­ing the sewn end fac­ing you ver­ti­cal­ly, pinch the top end closed and stitch it shut using a straight stitch on your sewing machine as shown in the pho­to above. Tie the threads on each end into dou­ble knots and trim off the excess thread.

Trim each end of the pock­et using scal­lop scis­sors or pink­ing shears. You will need a stur­dy pair of scis­sors for this as cut­ting through the chip­board is hard. You can also leave the edge straight.

Your fin­ished pock­et should now look like the pho­to above. You can leave yours as is or embell­ish it with embell­ish­ments of your choice. Have fun mak­ing these and ignore those fam­i­ly mem­bers that ques­tion your san­i­ty while you begin to hoard emp­ty TP rolls… I do. They just don’t get it.

Have a great week­end.
