Exploring ideas for pockets.
Photo 1 A3 sheet of notes/ sketches of different kinds of pockets.
I wanted to follow on with my theme of machinery, so for the following samples I dismantled an old remote control that was destined for the recycling bin, and used the pockets to contain the numbers and control buttons. I also photographed a circuit board and printed it in black and white onto an acetate sheet to make some of the pockets. The photos include a 2p coin for scale.
Photo 2 A square of organza folded and held in place with clock hands.
Photo 3 Clear PVC cut and sealed into pouches with a hot stencil cutter.
Photo 4 Printed acetate sewn into a humbug (or teabag) shape.
Photos 5 and 6 This pocket was based on little clamshell purses that open when you squeeze the ends together. This one contains some metal shavings donated by a friend’s husband. It wasn’t intentional, but it does make it look like an interesting seedhead – perhaps I should make a bouquet.
