Topic: What to put in my pocket?
Message: Posted by: Jonathan (Nov 24, 2009 01:07PM)
I have a loose index in my inner jacket pocket, but the pocket is too deep. I need the index to be a couple of inches higher in the pocket. Any ideas of how I could do that without sewing the pocket or putting something heavy or bulky in the bottom?

Glue a magnet to the back of the index, and use another one on the out/inner side of your pocket...cover the magnets in felt so they don't mark the cloth too much...doesnt need to be too strong...

That's a good suggestion, Ian. Mine was to stand on your head. I like yours better.

Iain , excellent thinking as per usual, you never cease contributing excellent ideas and solutions . May be made extra secure by using two ,one at each end .

Or, you could use a magnetic coin for one half...that way it'll add as a hold out for when/if you need it to switch or whatever...

15 minutes: You could rig a small hammock in the pocket, velcro on the ends of the cloth and stickum velcro at the proper place in the pocket's top edges. The round velcro dots would probably work fine.

Thanks, guys! I tried double sided foam tape to stick the front and back of the pocket together at the point where I want the new bottom to be. I had my doubts it would work but it actually works great! I don't know how easy it will be to undo if I need to, but I don't anticipate needing to take it off.

Not sure if anyone else will ever find themselves in the same situation, but if so double-sided foam tape seems at least initially to be a workable option. Thanks again! :)
