NURSERY BEDDING & ACCESSORIES deep. Use a single thickness of chintz, or a double thickness of lighter fabric. Cut a panel of fabric for the back panel the size of the finished overall piece. Cut three strips for pockets making the length of each strip the same as the width of the panel, and adding 2.5cm(1 in) across the top for a double hem, and 12 mm (t in) turning across the bottom. 

Cut sufficient binding or bias cut fabric to bind the outer edge of the back panel, and make two loops from fabric or binding to hang the storage pockets from the corner posts of the cot or from two hooks on the back of the door. Turn under a double 12 mm (t in) hem across the top of each pocket strip and stitch. Turn under and press a 12 mm (t in) seam allowance across the lower edge. Position the three strips across the front of the back panel, spacing them evenly apart.

 Tack in place down the sides and across the lower edge. Top stitch in place. Mark the width of each pocket across the strips, and tack down the marked lines. Top stitch in place, reinforcing the end of the stitching at the top of each pocket by sewing a few stitches in reverse, position binding around the outer edge of the front panel, making a pleat at each corner to form a neat mitre. 

Position the ends of the strip for the corner loops between the binding and fabric at each top corner. Stitch in place, enclosing the sides of the pockets and stitching across the end of the loops. Turn binding over to the back of the panel and stitch the folded edge in place by hand or machine.  

 For deeper pockets, allow an extra 2.5 cm (1 in) for each pocket along the length of the strip. Turn and stitch the top hem and press the seam allowance under along the lower edge. Before stitching the strip in position, mark the stitching lines for each pocket and make a 6 mm (;} in) deep tuck on either side of each line. Make similar tucks 2cmG in) from each end of the pocket strip. Tack the tucks in place. Position the strips across the back panel and stitch in place as before, so that the ends of the tucks are held in by the base stitching. Remove tacking and bind the edge.
