Where the heck is MY easy bake oven!

Hi. I wanted to show all of you a project I made a few weekends ago: it is a jewelry holder attached to the back of my closet door. I wanted a way to store my stuff so I can look at it all at once and see what I have and decide what I want to wear. It is hard to do that when it was all tangled up in a drawer.

This just 2 basic fabric rectangles (I used an old sheet), lined with fusable interfacing. I hemmed the rectangles and then sewed them together with little horizontal pockets left open to slide the 4 pieces of wood through to support it. Before I slid the wood into the pockets, I decided where I needed to hang necklaces and earrings etc. I sewed flaps open in the bottom (like upsidedown pockets) to hang earrings and pins. The posts can be pushed through the fabric. I then sewed strips of fabric to tie necklaces and bracelets to the hanger so they don't whip around when I open and close my door.

Picture of upsidedown pocket. I used fabric that would not fray--an old t-shirt

Picture of fabric tie holding necklace. Used t-shirt fabric.

Next, I slid the pieces of wood into the pockets so the fabric was centered. Then I attached picture hangers and little hooks through the fabric and into the wood to hang stuff on.
I screwed the wood ends into my closet door.

So, whaddya think???

Wow! this is very nice!

I like the tie idea, to keep stuff from banging around with the door being open/shut!!

This is pretty cool. I had been using command hooks on my wall to hold jewelry, but I might try this now.
