Oh boy! I am so happy to share a project I made for MY BOY!
My sweet son is always stashing things away in his pockets, bookbag, etc.
So why not give him a spot to keep his books, legos, and toys at bedtime?
Here is what you will need to make a twin-size, quilted bed runner with pockets!medium chevron from Riley Blake in the color "Boy". (appropriate, eh?)
I used Riley Blake's "One For the Boys".
Choose five coordinating fat squares to use and cut EACH as shown below...
I did a larger chevron pattern to stitch.
It's time to use your bias tape; mine is in 'navy'.
You will now iron your tape, as follows:
You will start by applying bias tape to the short edges of the bed runner...
You are almost done!
Finish by applying the bias tape to both long edges of the bed runner.
This will 'seal' the edge and form the pocket!
That's the last step! Your quilted bed runner is done.
I LOVE the patterned whimsy that this adds to my little fella's bed:)
And who can resist the coziness of anything quilted?
The backing is equally adorable!
It didn't take long for my boy to feel the pockets with books, legos, chapstick,
& even a rock collection!
(How long do you think until I find candy in there?! )
I am by NO MEANS a quilter, but I really enjoyed this beginning quilting project.
Hooray for all the boys in our lives!
Make this project for your sweet boy and see what 'treasures' he stows away in the pocketed bed runner.
