The Bed Pocket!

We don't have room for our nightstands in our room anymore and I have been wracking my brain trying to figure out a solution to our spacially challenged master bedroom. Than I found this tutorial and thought, "Self, you can do this. This is totally within you sewing ability." So off to Joanns I went in search for fabric that would perfect in our room. In the home decor section I found it and while watching 90210 and The Biggest Loser, I finished a pair of bed pockets.

I am in love with how they turned out and with the fabric. I can fit my book light (right now it is a huge mag lite but I will downsize when I can get to the bookstore) and Gone With The Wind (a 1000 page book). Ty is excited because he can put his gun in his. Have I mentioned lately that I married a closet red neck? Yuma brought it out in him and he can't suppress it like he used to. He wants me to get him this but a girl has to put her foot down at some point.
They really are super easy to make if you are looking for a simple yet fun solution to making a home for you books but can't squeeze in a night stand.
Here's another pic to get a closer look at it:

Jill please tell me that gun rack is a youtube farce. It is really disturbing. It's the correct height for a new baby learning to walk & pull herself up to a ginormous gun! Especially since babies put everything in their mouths... gun casings, bullets, or what have you. I could see Paige & James playing some crazy game that involves a gun right at the easiest possible place for a child to reach.... okay. I need to stop. I need some dirty picture or foul language on the internet to erase those disturbing images. YIKES!

I love this! You did a great job. I love that we can do something we love to create functional things for our daily life. That is my favorite part of sewing. They look great.
