We had a bit of a problem in the tiny "hallway" of our flat. It's not so much a hallway, more a square area with a door coming off each side..
I made this to solve the problem of having a sea of shoes by the front door  Smiley



Ideally, I would have made some more pockets, but I had to work with the space that was available.
It's hanging behind the front door and the hallway is looking very tidy now  Grin

Linen from my stash. The wooden bars at the top and bottom were in our storage, I believe this was a broom handle at some point, we just cut it to the right length. The D-rings I found in the bottom of our recycling box, before I gave a lecture about why we do not throw away D-rings.. I think they were found at work and deemed to be of no use  Shocked

Great problem solving! I love the reuse of materials esp. because the end project is so finished! Kudos!

I have a lot of clear vinyl in my stash, so was considering making another one with clear pockets for supplies.... but I honestly don't think I have the patience to make another one of these just yet  Cheesy

Thank you, everyone  Smiley

If anyone sees this and has any tips for even topstitching, it would be greatly appreciated! For this project I used the blind hem foot on my machine, adjusting the needle position. First I tried to use the guidelines on my regular presser foot, then I tried the overcasting foot... the blind hem foot seemed to produce the best result. I just worry because my next project will require me to topstitch around a curve and I'm not sure the blind hem foot will be up for the job.  Undecided
