This weekends project my very own handmade shoe organizer. My very own handmade shoe organizer! This idea/design is not that new but what's new is that I made it with scrap.
Materials I used:
1. Basic model sewing machine.
2. Bamboo. (collected from a construction site)
3. Jute thread.
4. Different colors cotton thread.
5. Old shredded cotton tops.
6. Old curtain.
Step 1: Step 1: Taking the Measurements.
Measure the length and width of your shoe. Added four to five inches extra to the width and one inch extra to the length.
Example: a. The approximate measurement of my stiletto came to - Length=8, width=4. (This is because my shoe size is very small)
b. By adding the extra inches now the measurements are - Length=9, Width=8.
The height is not necessary because the extra inches we add will help in adding volume to the pockets for the shoe to fit in.
Step 2: Step 2: Cutting Out the Pieces of Fabric.
a. Once the measurements are ready. Take your old shredded tops and cut out the sleeves and all the extra cloth from it. Then take the remaining fabric and cut them into 9/8" rectangles.
b. With the help of the sewing machine sew the edges of all the rectangular fabric with zigzag stitch.
Step 3: Step 3: Stitch the Pieces to the Curtain.
a. Organize all these rectangular pieces of fabric on the curtain.
b. Secure its place to the curtain by using ballpoint straight pin.
c. Stitch these pieces of fabric to the curtain with the sewing machine set to straight stitch.
Step 4: Step 4: Putting All the Material Together.
a. Tie the jute thread to the bamboo.
b. Secure it in a loop so that it can be used as a support to hang the curtain.
c. Once the bamboo and the jute thread are secure, loop the curtain onto the bamboo.
With this the shoe organizer is ready to go on the wall.
