Supplies used
How to Make a Handkerchief Pocket, start with a fabric handkerchief. Cut into quarters and select one of those quarters to use for the pocket.

Adhere the handkerchief to a book page, leaving at least a half inch of book page sewing on all sides, especially if it is thin or see through. Or adhere to a plain sheet of paper if you don’t want the text to be seen.

For my pocket I wanted it to be 5 x 5 inches. I used the existing sewed hem for two of the sides and scored the other two sides to the desired size.

Fold on the score lines to indicate pocket size. Make sure that it will accommodate the journal card you plan to put in the pocket. I will lay the card down over the handkerchief and then fold the edges in to confirm the size.

Select a length of flat lace and adhere on the side that doesn’t have a hem.

Open up the folds so that these don’t get sewn down. Sew the other three sides, which will help the napkin to stay in place over the book page.

Select two white paper flowers – these were old from my stash, if you have dies you could cut flowers or hand cut out of paper. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to change to a matching color. Dry the flowers or the spray will transfer to the napkin.

Stack the flowers together with glue. Select a piece of green Tattered Angels Dyed fabric and pleat to mimic a leaf and adhere under the flower. Add a flat back pearl or other gem to the center and adhere the flower unit on the napkin.

Adhere the sentiment in the corner or desired area.

Create the journal card with pocket. Using a piece of 5 x 7 cardstock as the base and a 5 x 3.5 inch piece adhere together. Round the corners. Apply a strip of scrapbook paper in the center of the pocket piece and then adhere a horse phrase on top.

Supplies Used:

Let’s begin the Hidden Pocket Journal Page Tutorial. Start by selecting two pages, I used the Bridle Farms digital for my pages, you can use any paper you have on hand. Fold the two pages in half as if putting into a journal. This will help marry the pages together later on when adding the magnets.

Print on the photo fabric desired pattern or use fabric that you have on hand. Cut or tear 1 inch strips that are at least 11 inches long. If you have freezer paper and white cotton fabric you can iron the shiny side of the freezer paper to the white cotton. Cut to 8.5 x 11 inches and place under heavy books for a few days to a week. Then you can use this in your ink jet printer as if it is paper.

Apply glue on the short edge the 8.5 inch edge of the page. Next lay the fabric down in the glue and scrunch to create a small ruffle of fabric along the edge. Repeat on the other side of the page so that you have fabric on both edges with the printed image.

On the second page apply a bead of glue down the edge like the fabric, but this time lay lace into the glue. I used flat lace, but any lace an be used.

Let the glue dry a bit. Now take this over to the sewing machine and stich the fabric and lace into place. If you don’t have a sewing machine, just make sure you put enough glue to hold the fabric and lace and it will hold.

For the inside: Cut four 1 inch x height of page strips of book pages or other scrap paper. My page is a standard letter size 8.5 x 11 inches so I made the strips 1 x 8.5 inches.

Lay the pages where you are working on the short edges the 8.5 inch side in my case, on the inside of the page, measure about 3 inches from the edge and place a dot of Fabri Tac or other glue that will hold a magnet. Place one magnet on the dot of glue, repeat for the other side so that there are two magnets on the same edge three inches in from the top and bottom edges.

Apply glue to the book page strip and place it over the magnets along the edge of the page. This will help hold the magnets in place while giving strength to the edge of the pocket.

Lay a second strip of paper over the first. Use your fingers to feel the magnets – or measure 3 inches in and apply a dot of Fabri Tac glue. Drop a magnet on the glue and it should snap over the first magnet. Repeat this process for the other magnet.

Carefully apply glue on the strip of paper and position the second journal page on top. Make sure you have your pages going in the right direction!!!

Okay you did it once and you can do it again on the other side!

Now that the magnets are installed it is time to seal the top and bottom of the pages. Sew along the very top and bottom edges or glue shut.

That’s it, you are done! I love the click the magnets make when it is closed.

Have fun adding hidden pockets in your pages!
