Monday Made it... BTS

I am so excited to be able to team up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made it!  I have wanted to but have not had anything to make... Crazy I know!  Well now I do and I can not believe I never thought of this before!!  Ok so if I could get in my classroom I would take a pic of all the pocket charts I have due to my endless quest for THE perfect pocket chart.  They are too long, too short, too wide, not wide enough, the pockets were to short/tall....  You get the picture It's cra-cray y'all!!  The one day last week I can't even remember how/what I was reading some teacher was looking for a pocket chart and another chimed in that she makes them.  I though cool!!  I need to go find her Etsy store.  Then as I really started thinking I was like I CAN DO THAT!!!    I started thinking about it and sketching out what I have really been wanting and I DID IT!!  LOOK!
I mostly have done baby blankets and curtains in the past... Easy to hide my bad sewing skills.  I honestly ripped and redid more stitches on this than any other project in the past.  But I love how it turn out!  The Perfect Pocket!!   I tried to capture the steps as I went.

Not bad for a first try if I do say so myself!  I already have ideas to improve and I am thinking of making and selling them.  What do you think?  Would you have an intrest?

Also, right now I got spiral notebooks at Walmart for .17 cents!!  I create month long homework menus and have the students do the work in them.

  4. Your pocket chart is amazing! I know many teachers would like charts to match their classroom décor.
