Hanging Pockets!

I really like hanging pockets!

I like that they keep things up off various surfaces, benches and tables - and you can make them to whatever size you need!



Bed pockets for my girls to keep their books in:

Pockets for notebooks:





I received some of this lovely fabric from Wholeport that was just perfect for...yes you guessed it...more hanging pockets!

My girls desks do get rather cluttered...

So I decided to try and provide spaces for all those little trinkets that girls just can't do without - but try to get them up off their desks so they have space to draw, do homework etc!


Hopefully this will help my daughter keep her desk tidy... Now I need to make another set of pockets for my younger daughter too!!

Do you have any hanging pockets in your house??
Tell me I'm not the only one.....

  1. No, you're not the only one, Jill. I had lots in the kids' rooms when they were growing up. The only one I have now is a behind the door in my sewing room.... a shoe organiser from Big W. I put ribbons, ric rac etc in there. I like the pockets hanging off the bed. Not only does it provide storage, it hides whatever may be under the bed.

  2. That fabric is absolutely wonderful! It elevates your (always cute) pockets to a piece of decor - loooove it!

  3. My mom made hanging pockets for the car when we were little kids, and I still have them! They were elasticized and the elastic is shot now, but I plan to hang them up in my craft room as soon as we find a house to buy. I am loving that vintage balloon fabric you used, it's very steampunk! :)

  4. I have pockets for the car, but not like I used to have in my van! LOL, that van's interior was almost all pockets, but my kids were little, then.
    Soon, I will (hopefully -they're trying hard) be starting over, making pockets for my kids, for their kids, as well as making new ones for my grandkids, when they come to see grandma & grandpa!
    Pockets are life savers, and even now, if I have a choice between 2 outfits, & only one has pockets, that is the one for me!
