Have you ever wanted an embroidered pocket but never had the time to make one? This hand sewn linen pocket is based on the the shape of an American pocket but scaled down to a more manageable size of 13 3/4" deep and 9" at it's widest. To add to it's uniqueness this pocket is pieced using natural and white linen to make the back. The machine embroidery is difficult to know since the front is lined in natural linen and the crewel work shows some wear as though they were part of reused bedcurtains found in New England. The 6 1/2" slit is better suited to a smaller hand. The 3/8" wide linen tape is, along with pocket, is 73" of girth to go around your waist along with plenty for tying for most women. As a period 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".
