Hanging Bed Organizer

For my brother’s birthday I did sew a hanging bed organizer, following a tutorial on Sew,Mama,Sew! by Beth. Great tutorial! Very easy to follow with a great result! And the best is, that not a lot of materials were needed.

It was the first time I used seam binding and I have to admit I like the result. It is really an easy, no-hassle way to finish up all the seams.

I used fabric by Ikea and I really like the way the pattern worked out – it wasn’t that easy to get a bird with all its plants to the center of the organizer. =) My favourite though is the right pocket with the flowers coming out of the side seam.

I used a non-skid rug pad from Ikea, though not the standard one but the felted one as it appeared to be easier to work with. And it worked fine.

To know for sure if it really doesn’t slip with a heavy workload, I’ll have to ask my brother in a few weeks from now. 😉 See you then.

Already stressed about Christmas presents?

Well, I have already thought about them too. And I came across a few on-line tutorials that inspired me to hand craft most of my presents this year.

I especially love this necklace (the full title: Louis Vuitton “Knock Off” Fabric Bead Necklace) by froo*gal.

I think I am going to start doing a few of those for selected girlfriends this weekend, as soon as my exam on Friday has been passed (hopefully successfully ).

I also fell in love with this bag by A Mingled Yarn, that’s originally a diaper bag but will be adapted to work as a map / book bag for me to take all my stuff to university with me:

And someone will also be presented with fabric covered magnets by jcaroline creative! as a christmas gift. Aren’t they just gorgeous:

Oh, and I really have to go to a jumble sale. I need album cover sleeves for this great organizing idea:

And to satisfy all cravings for sweets, I’ll try out these great sounding cookies by have cake, will travel!. Hopefully it will not a ‘frustration feast’ after my exam… 😉
Don’t they just sound great: White Chocolate Lime Cookies!
