Step 1: Materials

You will need:

~ Fabric (your choice of length)
~ Old Jeans (for pockets)
~ Basic Sewing Skills
~ Needle & Thread
~ Scissors

Step 2: Organize the Pockets

Once all of your pockets are cut off your old jeans, you may want to figure out where you will place them. So place your recycled pockets onto the fabric where you would like to sew them. This was my first decision of placement. Of course you are able to switch if you'd like.

Step 3: Cut Your Fabric

Now you'll need to cut the fabric down to the size you would like your organizer. You may want to cut it based on the amount of old jean pockets you have.

Step 4: Thread Your Needle

Thread your needle and make sure to have a secure knot at the end of the thread.

Step 5: Sew, Sew, Sew!

In order to sew your pockets, you'll need a little patience. Just remember the placement of the pockets on your fabric and make sure you don't see your stitches unless that's the look you're going for!

Step 6:

Once you've finished sewing on all your pockets, your'e finished! Wasn't that simple? Now an option will be to turn this wonderful organizer into a wall organizer by nailing it to your wall! I hope you liked this project. Have a nice day!
