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 ! !
