My time spent perusing all the wonderful blogs for the Where Bloggers Create party this year caused me to really think about my studio and whether or not I was really happy with it. Actually I knew the answer already but the thought of all the work that was going to be needed to get it the way I truly wanted it was both exciting and daunting at the same time. I will show you what I have done in the next few posts. First I thought I would share with you a hanging organizer I made.
I used the top of a burlap curtain panel I had once made but you could just use cut of burlap or any fabric for that matter. I layered it with a backing fabric and bound it all around with a wide piece of lace that I folded over to both sides. I used ribbon and lace sewn into the top for tying it to the door hooks. (I didn't have any so I went to target and bought a $7.99 plastic door hanger and used the hooks that came with that.)
Then I cut out the pockets. Make sure you shape them something like this so there is room for you to put things in them once they are sewn down.
I added more lace trim to the tops of the pockets before I sewed the to the panel. Just line the edges of each pocket straight up and down to make the gap in the pocket. When your finished you can fill it with your favorite goodies!!
On a completely different subject...
Perhaps many of you have tried the new Blogger Interface. If you haven't you should try it out. Not because I think it's wonderful, because frankly I really don't like it. I think you should try it out because once you do and you will have the option to return to the old interface (the one many of us are still using.) Blogger is going to ask you to leave feedback for them. This is very important. If you don't try it out and leave feedback, Blogger will never know how you feel about it and may decide to change things over permanently. We have been given a rare opportunity to tell Blogger what like and don't like about a change before it is made permanent.
So let your voice be heard!!! :)
