My version made from brown canvas. Thought it was too plain once I made it so I bought a couple of stencils and a white paint marker and started placing them randomly.



With some stuff in it.


Close-up of stencilled patterns. Tried to create some visual interest by breaking up the patterns over the pocket areas.


I think I would use these stencils again and if there was a different one available with smaller pinecones, the overall effect would have been different as I don't think the large pinecones nestle quite well.

In any case, I'm pleased with how it came out as I'm not a very good sewer.

What a neat idea! I bought an over-the-door hanger for my bathroom but the pockets aren't the size/shape I need.  Though Christmas is approaching FAST... so maybe this would be a great teenage-back-of-my-cluttered-room's-door gift  Smiley
