Pockets of Fun!

It’s littlest nephew’s birthday next week, and I had to quickly make something for his quirky tastes & personality.

His dad had recently donated me some stylish shirts to recycle, and I noticed the pockets were a feature in themselves. 

So I started pulling out a few more shirts and items of clothing (I’ve been hoarding keeping for recycling!) with different shaped pockets.  A seed of an idea took hold and so the Pocket Wall Tidy was born.

Now this wee guy loves drawing, colouring and playing with Lego figures.  So I thought this might help him keep track of lots of the bits and pieces that so easily multiply & make their way into every corner of the room!

I replaced most of the shirt buttons with bright red and blue ones and recycled a child’s belt to make the hanging loops.

He’s also nuts about Batman and superheros, so I found some cute superhero buttons online and added them to the pockets.

All I have to do now is fill up those pockets with lego and treats and that will hopefully be a 7 year old happy for another year!

Hope you’ve had a Marvel-ous weekend!
