Have you ever wanted an embroidered pocket but never had the time to make one? This c. 1730-1780 pocket is 13 1/2" deep by 8 3/4" at its widest and has a 7 1/4" slit reinforced all the way around with a self binding. This hand sewn linen pocket is machine embroidered with an unbleached linen lining and white linen backing. The 3/8" linen tape will be attached at a length you specify. This pocket is inspired by original pockets that appear to be remade of an earlier embroidered item and therefor the crewel work shows some wear. For example in The Proceedings of the Old Bailey in 1764 two men "were indicted, for that they, on the 24th of March , about the hour of nine at night, the dwelling house of George Rice , Esq ; did break and enter, and stealing . . . the property of Anne Brown, spinster; one linen pocket, one worsted pocket".
