My latest free tutorial, a handy bedside organizer, is both functional and attractive. I designed this to hold my glasses, my ipad, phone, TV remote, water and/or other items that I need close at hand. Here is my bedside organizer, hanging in place on the side of my bed:
To help you visualize this project, here is a sketch:
For this project, I simply dug in my stash until I found some old flannel, about 3/4-1 yard. Then I needed a matching smaller piece of fabric (12″x16″) to use as the front pockets. As an option, you could also substitute quilted fabric in place of the flannel.
Besides the 2 fabrics, you need thread, your sewing machine, rotary mat, cutter and ruler. Here are the supply list sized to be printed out for your convenience:
Directions are pretty straightforward. Again, I wrote the directions and sized it to be printed out:
This is a fast project, I made it in less than an hour. I actually love that it is now hanging on the side of my bed and allows me extra space to store my books, nick-knacks, etc. Here is a picture I took just before I tucked it between my mattress ad box spring:
As always, if you make one using my free tutorial, please send me a comment or picture. Happy New Year!! Carla
