Childhood dreams in the pocket

At the moment I'm following the Patched pockets class of Karen although I'm still very much involved with my paper plates. Therefore I thought it would be a nice idea to make a paper pocket together with a hankie dress because I loved pockets as a child, simply to tuck away something precious. 

I used an historical dress pocket as a reference and made it with a running stitch, chainstitch, french and bullion knots, the cord is of white embroidery thread made with my snoregaffel.

Let me know what you think while enjoying your thursday.

you really are exceptionally good at these, the composition, the colour choices, the gentle lines....

Another lovely piece. I could see a series developing here, linking the dresses and the pockets and creating those hidden treasures within the pockets. Oh so much potential.
