We absolutely love today’s tutorials and need at least a half dozen of these to help us organize our lives. You’ll want to make some as gifts and some for yourself!
Corkboard/Wall Pocket
Have you wondered how to make the great wall pockets you see on crafty blogs? They are fantastic as inspiration boards and a fun way to give favorite fabrics a strong visual presence in your environment. Linda from Craft Apple shows you how to make one for yourself (oh, and for gifts too!) with her Corkboard/Wall Pocket Tutorial.
Car Organizer
Alicia’s Car Organizer Tutorial is a great solution for vehicle clutter and would make a great holiday gift; Alicia writes, “…Sneak into your sister’s minivan and take a few measurements!” Visit Alicia’s blog, mayfly, for more inspiration.
Quick Pocket
Tracy from Crafty Beats made her Quick Pocket from a dishtowel. In an hour and a half she created a pretty, tidy solution to shelf clutter and she shares it with you in her Quick Pocket Tutorial.
Pleated Pocket Front Door Organizer
Meg’s Pleated Pocket Front Door Organizer Tutorial provides a place to put many of life’s little items as you come and go. Visit Meg’s blog, Montessori by Hand, for more innovative and beautiful ideas.
