9″ wide x 7″ tall main fabric + 9″ wide x 7″ tall lining fabric (for each pocket)
5″ piece of 3/8″ wide elastic
Pacifier Pocket Template
Print the template and cut out one main fabric piece and one lining piece (or two linings). It will gather best without interfacing.
Place the two pieces right sides together and sew with a 3/8″ seam allowance, leaving a small (3-4″) gap on one straight side. Backstitch at the beginning and end of the gap.
Stitch one end of the elastic in one corner, over the existing stitch line (make sure it is *below* the stitching across the top).
Stretch out the pocket as you topstitch with at least a 1/2″ seam allowance. Make sure the elastic stays at the top of the seam so you do not stitch through it. You are basically making a casing and want the elastic to move freely inside so that it will gather the fabric. Use a larger seam allowance if you struggle to keep the elastic to the side.
