How to add a Clipboard pocket to the Nappy Bag10:23
You all loved seeing Amanda's new work bag, and I'm so thankful for your kind comments!
One of the most important elements to Amanda (apart from there being NO PINK!) was to have a clipboard pocket in the lining. You can see it in the top of the photo below, with the cream piping.
So I added some invisible magnetic snaps, and I took some photos of the process to share with you all.
First of all, using the pattern piece for the main body, I cut 2 pieces 10" high from the bottom. I used the same fabric for the outside of the pocket and the lining of the pocket so that it's not obvious.
Then I got two invisible magnetic snap sets and marked them with a pen. I marked the sides that attracted to the other sides, one set with a cross, one with a line. Invisible magnetic snaps don't have to have the same partner, you just need to make sure that the sides you're sewing together are ones that attract rather than repel.
You could use this method for any pocket you like. The best thing about invisible magnetic snaps is that they don't catch on anything you want to put in and out of the pocket!
