Wearable Tie-On Pocket


Wearable Tie-On Pocket


Serving as a kind of hand bag or purse, tie-on waist pockets are beloved objects traditionally worn under a woman’s skirt, between the 17th and 19th centuries.

Remaining examples of these beautiful handmade accessories can be found in museum collections around the world, and range from modestly undecorated to elaborately embroidered.

These pockets are curiously evocative, and immediately transport the viewer to intimate imaginings of the original owner’s life. Something about the obvious opening for the hand, into a place meant to keep secreted and precious objects has us relating deeply to our own desire to keep cherished items near.

Join teacher Karen Stevens as we pay homage to this historical garment, while adding our own artful spin. Karen will take us through the pattern, and suggest ways in which we can personalize our work for a unique outcome.
