These pockets will be used to hold our tiniest miracles and say goodbye. They will be used in local Emergency Rooms and OBs.

Precious Pocket Pattern

  • Cut three 12"X12" squares of any fabric. We used unbleached or bleached muslin but any tiny print will work. Keep in mind that gender is not always know as you choose colors.
  • Cut two 12"X12" squares of interfacing. Cut one of those squares on the diagonal, setting aside one of the triangles for another pocket.
  • Iron the square piece of interfacing to the wrong side of one of the squares of fabric. Iron the triangle to the wrong side of another square, matching corners. Fold this piece wrong sides together creating a triangle of fabric.
  • Take the remaining 2 squares of fabric and pin them right sides together with the ironed square. Stitch this square all the way around leaving a 1 1/2" opening. Turn the square inside out and iron flat.
  • Take the fabric triangle and sew your lace, drawstring, or ribbon to the folded side of the triangle. We used an eyelet lace that we could thread a ribbon through to use as a drawstring. We straight stitched two rows on the lace and then threaded our ribbon leaving extra to tie in a bow at the center.
  • It is now time to put the pieces together. Pin the triangle to the square, right sides together. Make sure that the triangle is over the opening you used to turn the square inside out. The triangle will be larger but it can be trimmed after it is sewn together. Straight stitch the triangle to the square leaving the folded side open.
  • Turn the pocket inside out and iron flat.
  • Use a straight or decorative stitch to stitch around the whole square.
  • Decorate the upper back corner of the pocket with a bow, button, charm, etc. This detail adds a lot when the corner is folded down over the infant. A small piece of ribbon or crocheted loop is added to the upper underside of the pocket to lace the pocket ribbon for closure.

    Have fun making these "Precious Pockets." Feel free to donate your pocket in memory of an angel you know by pinning their name to the pocket.
