Not only is this my first challenge entry but it is my first Craftster show off as well. Posting more is another resolution of mine. Tongue

After a long night of boredom, lots of Elvis, and a very big mess the Jail House Rock closet organizer was born. I don't know the exact measurements but let me tell you it is bigger than I am. The backing is interfaced black duck cloth. The pockets up top are separated into 4 pockets and 2 pockets to hold all my miscellaneous other things. The shoe pockets are what really killed me. They took forever, each pocket is a rectangle with an arch shaped piece sewn to the bottom and the attached. All together there are 16 shoe pockets, 4 rows of 4.  It was originally supposed to hang off of one of those over the door hook deals but after all the work was said and done I gave up and nailed it to the closet door itself. So without further ado I present to you The Jail House Rock closet organizer.

Sorry if the pictures aren't that great, my camera was acting shoddy. And of course it had to pick up all my dangling uncut thread. Tongue

How fun, and, judging by the different interpretations of your work, a very versatile piece as well! What came to MY mind when I first saw the black and white stripes was, of course, The Wizard of Oz! ~Dorothy
