“Denim Pocket Sewing Room Organizer” found on Pinterest.
While we could not find a pattern for the organizer pictured above, it won’t be hard to make your own. Notice how the pockets are stitched onto opened up legs. Belt loops are used to tie the organizer to a wooden hanger.
The following organizer features pockets sewn to squares of fabric. Cut the pockets close to the seamed edges and sew them down following the existing stitching lines. A hanging sleeve was added to hang it from a rod. Click here for “An Upcycling Project for Denim Pockets” containing instructions from Cloth Paper Scissors.
The next organizer is made of pockets sewn down to a fabric backing that slides over a hanger. The instructions are included in Denim All Around, which can be purchased here.
Decide on a background for your pockets, organize them in a pleasing way and determine how to hang your organizer. Make sure all raw edges are turned under or hemmed. In the end you’ll have a very functional piece that can be used just about anywhere and washed if needed.
