38 Dorm Room Sewing Projects

Despite the fabulous portrayal of dorms in pop culture, we all know that for the most part, you’re living in a small closet during your time at college.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing; a small space is easy to maintain and forces you to keep less. However, people don’t always keep less.

To help control your stuffed room we’re presenting these dorm organization ideas that you can easily sew. Maximize your space and keep your brain stress-free (as far as your room goes) with these 38 Dorm Room Sewing Projects.

These DIY dorm ideas are a great solution for tight quarters. What does one do with all of those extra nick-knacks? Throw them away? Certainly not!

Keep them stored securely in any one of these decorative organizers. This collection contains projects for all kinds of spaces. You might have zero closet space and no door; ergo, a hanging organizer would not be conducive to your dorm.

There are some major considerations when thinking about your soon-to-be room. One, the size of the room. Unless you're living in a witty sitcom, you'll basically be living in a box with a peer for a while. It's time to maximize your space.

Two, as much of a minimalist as you are, realistically you have a bunch of odds and ends around. Keep them in cute containers with these DIY dorm ideas. Three, the style to make you feel at home.

In addition to items that might condense the amount of junk in a room, you’ll also find some cute and budget-friendly decor in this roundup. Learn how to make pillows, sheets, and even a sitting solution by simply browsing below.
