We love a good craft at our house. So much so, we have our own kids craft corner. Complete with ridiculous amounts of craft supplies like glue, glitter, paper, playdough, eyeballs, etc. We love it. But sometimes I hate it. It is a constant pile of stuff.
So to fix this, I went from this to this!!!!
Much better on the eyes and much better on the small space to store.
Thought I'd share how I did it will you today!
Construction Paper Holder
1/2 yd main material
4-5 fat quarters (depending how many pockets you want)
First, cut your pieces. You will want one piece in your main fabric that measures 15" x 44". Then you'll want 8-10 pocket pieces that measure 15" x 10". Cut 1 long piece of interfacing that is 10" x 30".
Iron the interfacing to the wrong side of your main piece.
Next, fold the long edge of your pocket pieces 1/4" and then 1/2". Press and stitch in place. Repeat with all your pocket pieces.
Place all your pocket pieces on your main piece. Start in the middle of the main piece and pin.
Stitch across the bottom edge of each pocket piece.
Once all your pocket pieces are stitched down, baste the pockets to the main piece by stitching up the side seams.
Next, carefully fold the top edge of the main piece over the pockets and pin it in place. Stitch around the entire main piece leaving a 5-6" opening on the bottom edge.
Flip your pockets right side out and stitch across the bottom edge.
In each of the top corners and bottom corners add a button hole. This will be how you tie your holder to the drawers, chair or table.
Finally, use ribbon to tie your paper holder to your drawers.
Fill it up! And watch with amazement how your simple creation makes a more organized space! Plus, the littles can now see all the different colors of paper and they love it!!
