WOW, time flies! Just a few minutes this morning. I am working on repairing some antique quilts for a customer. It is slow work but very rewarding when you see the results! Will have to take some pics.  I made some magazine holders for all of my, I have a lot of mags and books!! But I cannot let go of any of   See the pics...Here are some general instructions...
Front and back are cut at 12  1/2" x 49". Each pocket is cut at 12  1/2" x 17".  The pockets are folded in half and a decorative stitch done across the top for a little extra support.  Then I sewed the bottom of each pocket to the front (right side) starting with the bottom pocket. Once it was sewn on, I laid the next pocket down so there was 5" between the top of the bottom pocket and the next one and sewed the bottom of the 2nd pocket down. I did this with a zig zag stitch for support.  I made a total of 7 pockets and sewed each one on that way. BOTTOMS only,  Once that was done, I laid them all out flat and put the back side down on top with right sides of the front and back together and the pockets between and pinned to secure. I sewed down one side, across the bottom and up the other side leaving the top open. I turned it inside out and pressed it and then topstitched the sides.  I turned the top down inside about 2" and topstitched it closed and added the grommets. They hold a lot of mags/books. I did use a little more than a 1/4" seam allowance on this too. The finished is about 11 1/2" x 46".  Hope you enjoy!!!!! 
As always, have a wonderful day and God Bless ! !
