Once upon a time, THE Happy Zombie posted a pattern for some little Pennie Pockets. Pretty soon, they started popping up all over, because this is what happens in ZombieLand. Monica pours the kool-aid and we all drink it. I knew, as soon as I had my first sip that I’d been had. I started hallucinating and equations were flashing before my eyes:
Monica’s pattern is so easy and fun and fast. I changed the little triangle on the front and used wool felt so that it would be easier to do the crochet along the edge. I punched holes every 1/2 inch and just started crocheting. I think it took longer to do the machine embroidered little hearts than it did to do the crochet.
I’m lucky enough to have an embroidery machine, but if you don’t have one, you could just as easily do some hand embroidered hearts. There are some really cute Pennie Pockets in the Pennie Pocket flickr pool that have hand embroidered names on them.
These little pockets are addictive too. I had lots of fun trying them in lots of different fabrics and colors, with different combinations of those conversation hearts. (Btw, if you do have an embroidery machine, those hearts are available at Embroidery Library.)
Now, what to fill them with???
