The Thankful Pocket

Every family needs The Thankful Pocket to fill with notes of all of the things we are thankful for!  This is a project that can be used during the month of November, or even the entire year!   We all have things to be thankful for!

Time:   1 hour

Skill Level:  Easy plus simple embroidery

YOU WILL NEED:

9” x 12” craft cut of Kunin Premium Felt:  Sandstone

Ribbon

Hot glue gun

Cutting mat

Cutting ruler

Rotary Cutter

Embroidery Floss (I picked brown)

Embroidery Needle

Scissors

Sharpie or marker

Cardstock

STEP ONE

Using a cutting mat, cutting ruler and a rotary cutter, cut two 6” x 6” squares from the Sandstone felt.

STEP TWO

With a sharpie or other kind of marker, write the words The Thankful Pocket on one of the squares.

STEP THREE

Thread the needle with the embroidery floss.  Tie a knot at the end and begin stitching the letters using a backstitch.

STEP FOUR

On the other square, hot glue the ribbon to two of the edges to make it easy to hang.

STEP FIVE

Hot glue the top square to the square with the ribbon glued to it.  TIP:  Make sure to have the back of the stitching and the glued ribbon pieces on the inside of the pocket.

STEP SIX

Cut cardstock into strips and use these to write what you are thankful for.   Place them in the pocket!

You could write daily thankful notes or you could have the family write them out at your Thanksgiving gathering.

I hope you like this thoughtful little pocket that can be filled with your thankful thoughts!!!
