School Girl Pocket Finished!

I purchased this cross stitch pattern designed by Primitive Betty's at a Prim shop last fall.  I didn't start it until Christmas vacation.  Last week, I finished up the last rows of stitching and then finished it into the pocket.

I haven't stained it yet and I'm not sure I'm going to.  I have it hanging in our bedroom on this peg rack.
 I used a reproduction fabric for the lining, strap 
 and backing

Be sure to check out the Spring Giveaway that the PAFA team is having on Etsy.  The button to take you to the PAFA blog is located in the upper right corner of my blog.  I'm giving away an Easter Basket - you can see it on the PAFA blog or on my blog, 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets - the link for this is also on the right hand sidebar.  There are 21 prizes for 1st place!  There are several gift certificates to be given out also. 

Hope you are having a good week. 


  1. Love It!! I have been away from blogland for a while and just caught up on yours. Thanks so much for sharing your stories. I enjoy your blog, love your work and come away with inspiration and motivation.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. I love it and think it looks great just the way it is.

  3. Love the pocket & how it's displayed. Have a wonderful evening.


  4. Another here who loves this design, your finish is quite nice just the way it is, very nicely displayed, congrats!

  5. It finished wonderfully, Ann! :) Would it be alright with you if I showed it on ~*Friday Finishes*~ this week? :)

  6. I just made mine too, but I messed up and have too short of a piece. I had to leave off the last couple of rows. Now it's too small for some frames, but too big for others!!! Ugh.....hate when I mess things up. I'll just put it aside until some inspiration hits me!!Yours looks awesome!!

  7. I absolutely love that pocket stitchery!


Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm so happy to "meet" you through blog land. ~Ann
