Sewing a Pocket Hanger Organizer Tutorial

I made my organizer with 6 pockets. Here is what you will need:
  • 6- 12x6 rectangle of different fabric
  • 6- 6x6 squares of interfacing
  • 45x6 inch piece of felt or flannel for back
For hanging strip:
  • 2 1/2 x 15 piece of material
  • 1 1/2 x 15 piece of interfacing

Step 1- Make Pockets

  1. Take a strip of 12x6 fabric and iron interfacing on half.
  2. Fold bottom edge up to match edges. Iron flat.
  3. Fold edges on three sides in 1/4 inch. Iron flat. This help keeps edges stay folded inwards. Continue with each pocket piece. One edge will be your fold and won't need turned in.
