So, with nothing to do this afternoon, not fully using my closet's storage space potential and having a huge pile of floral fabric that (i kid you not) has been sitting around for the last 7 years i decided to make a closet organizer.. and a tutorial to go with it.   Cheesy Apologies if you can't see a whole lot of detail.. things are very floral.



cut a large rectangle of fabric, mine is 30 inches long and 21 wide.


pin and hem edges. Depending on how angry the demon residing in your sewing machine is (mine was very angry), this could take a while.



Now my new measurements were 28 inches long and 18 inches across.
 

Now cut another rectangle. Mine is 16 by 24 Then divide this piece into 3 equal pieces


Hem the top edge of each smaller piece

Fold over the edges of the smaller pieces and pin them to the longer piece. Then sew them to the larger piece.



Notice the Pockets are HUGE! So divide them as you see fit. I divided the top two into three sections, while the i divided the bottom on in half.




For the ties, find your self some ribbon/felt/anything, make them into loops and sew to the top. I used felt because frankly i didn't want to deal with those flowers anymore.



Then hang and fill.



*edit and afternote*
You may want to try this with a stiffer fabric than cotton if your planning on putting anything with weight in it. Mines only for socks/underwear, so i didn't have to worry about it.

There are soooo many possibilities for something like this.  I am thinking it would be good for sorting baby items, too....... pockets could be made different sizes!
Thanks for the tute!
You did a great job!
