Pocket Pouch for Couch?

Category Advice

I am looking for a pocket "pouch" or some item to attach to the arm of a couch for holding writing equipment, such as pencils, etc. It must be attractive enough to put in a hostess area Not very bulky


I will be happy to purchase one or make it if I had a pattern.

Thank you very much in advance.

I made one from a new square pot holder. With 1 corner up, fold the 2 side corners overlapping and tack with a few stitches. I sewed on a pretty button for decoration and tacked this, with a few stitches to the armrest cover on the couch. You could use velcro, too. I keep a nailfile, scissors for clipping coupons, a pen in there .

I just read about an idea for this. The woman didn't want one of those big spread out units that hold the black boxes for the tv. She wanted one with neater lines, smaller and didn't eat up the arm of the chair. the answer to her was to take a purse, an old one that was slim and square.


Remove the shoulder straps from the rings, attach a ribbon in a co-ordinating colour that were long enough to go over the arm from the bag, to under the seat cushion. I suppose you could even tack it under the cushion...sure sounds more chair friendly than piercing the upholstery of the chair arm. Hope this helps.
