Excerpt from Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine, 1864
This watchpocket is of very pretty design, although made without difiiculty. As most of our young lady readers are well practised in the art of crochet, the part which is composed ofthat sort of work will be easily accomplished, and the rest is simple in the extreme. The pocket itself is made of silk, of any color that may best suit the hangings or paper of the room in which it is to hang. Our design is of green, but this can be varied at pleasure. The front is made with a thin layer of cotton wadding between two pieces of the silk, those two pieces being first run together in the inside at the top, and then quilted round. The back has in it a piece of card-board, to keep it in the right form. This is also covered with silk, having a layer of cotton in the inside for the watch to rest upon. This cotton-wool answ s the don ble purpose of dulling the sound of the ticking of the watch, which sometimes prevents persons of delicate c nstitutions from sleeping, and of preserving the watch from injury. The back and front thus prepared are to be'placed together, and stitched all round the outer edge; after which the edge should be cut neatly round. The pocket is to be bound with ribbon of the same color. Then the two pieces of crochet are to be laid on, the satin ribbon strings and bows added, and the Work completed.
