Want a space efficient way to store your shoes? This organizer is going to make your tidying up dreams come true.
It can also be modified to different sizes to hold other things like jewelry or toiletries.
My door is 80 inches tall and 36 inches wide. So I am going to make my organizer 26”x 50”.
Measure your space to determine how large you want your shoe organizer to be.
Cut out two pieces of fabric and interfacing that are that size. The interfacing I am using is only 20 inches wide so I will have to sew pieces together to make them the width of my organizer.
I found that using paperclips helped as well.
Using the painter’s tape and a ruler, create pleats in your pockets so they will have room to spread out. Mark where you are going to sew in the pockets as well as you go along. I am making my pockets 6 inches wide with 1 ½ inch pleats. The boot pockets will be double that.
Sew along the bottom edge of the vinyl strips, making sure to leave the pleats in tact but taking off the tape before it goes through the sewing machine.
Sew your bias tape around the edges of your organizer. See our how to sew bias tape tutorial for step by step instructions. I am using pre-made bias tape but you can also make your own.
Cut a small hole in the top corner of the bias tape and insert a dowel across the top of your organizer to help it lay flat.
