Today I made this:
It's the front of a hanging jeans pocket organiser. I saw one like this on pinterest and have been wanting to try it for myself.
So I used some old cut up jeans:
And played around with the pockets and waistbands..
And amazingly only bent one machine needle while stitching through all those thick seams!
But now I'm not sure how to finish my hanging organiser.
I need to cover the back somehow:
My thoughts at the moment are to either
1. Cut piece of buckram (very stiff cloth used for stiffening) to help it hold its' shape. Cover that, then just stitch it to the back of the hanger.
2. Cover the back with fabric and slide in a sheet of stiff card to help it hold it's shape.
Then I think I'll hang it using a short piece of dowel rod slipped through the belt loops at the top and some ribbon for the hanging loop.
What do you think?
I'd welcome any opinions and suggestions or alternatives!
