chair pockets

I love a quick (less than two hours, start to finish), easy (followed this tutorial, more or less), and cute craft project that addresses a storage and organization need!  The coloring table is always junked up since it's not that big and my children apparently own more coloring and activity books than any ten kids need. Chair pockets get the coloring books off the table, but keep them accessible for use.  



Notice that there are nice tidy slots in the table that they could conceivably store some coloring books in.  Despite my best attempts, this solution has been repeatedly rejected.  Go figure.  I think it's because you have to turn the coloring books just right to get them to fit in the slots.  Maybe the chair pockets will be better used?  One can hope.

Wow! Your chair pockets are awesome.... Would you consider making and selling some? I would LOVE to use these in my classroom.

Thank you so much, Casi! Unfortunately, I just don't have the time to do sewing orders. My own little homeschool classroom and personal sewing and knitting projects keep me hopping! Best wishes!

I love your chair pockets. I do not sew but have a grandmother of a student that is willing to make them. I'm so lucky to have her offer to help. Can you tell me how to make these so I can give her some directions? What material works best? I bought a few pockets and they only lasted a few weeks. Thanks for you help, Kristin
