New Pump Pocket.

Yesterday I was cutting out shorts for Tom and Christopher. One of my scrap pieces of fabric was a rectangle piece and I thought, this is probably a perfect size to make Tom a new pump pocket.

I decided to have a go of making it. I cut out a long piece to be the belt and then cut another piece for the flap to close the pouch.

This is what I came up with and I am very pleased with how it has turned out.

This is the front of the pouch with the belt though it.

I am going to put velcro on the belt for it to stay on his waist. I am also going to add some velcro to the flap to keep it down.

This is the back of the pouch. I put in some big button holes to thread the pouch though. The belt is a bit wider than the button holes but that is fine. I don't think the belt could be much thinner and fit the velcro on.

It was a bit of a learning experience also and I will do a couple of things differently when I make him another one.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
