Locker Organizer

My latest project is live on We All Sew – this time around, I’m getting ready for back to school by showing you hove to make a Locker Organizer!

Lockers were something new for Easton last year. He did a fairly good job keeping it neat, but I came up with this idea because there were some “everyday essentials” that he needed to find quickly (because let’s face it, you don’t get very much time to go to your locker in between passing periods). The finished size of this project is 8 1/2 ” x  30 1/2″ (so it should fit most lockers) and is hung with magnetic bull clips (I purchased these from the office section at Walmart and they held beautifully without any sliding) . It’s loaded with pockets: There is a top pocket that is perfect for pens, pencils, etc., an expandable middle pocket that can hold bulky items (and phones), and a cargo netting pocket that’s large enough to hold folders and notebooks, but is see through so you always know what’s inside. I also created a pocket with a frame so that it can hold a favorite photo or small mirror.

This project will take you a bit more time to create, largely because there is a lot of measuring and cutting involved, but is worth it in the end! I had a lot of fun coming up with this one and I can’t wait to see your versions!
