I made a similar organizer out of fabric like this one, but I ended up using it for an apron, added some ties for around the waist and a loop of fabric at the top to put over the neck. It was an apron for housecleaning, where you put your cleaning bottles, dust cloths and squeegee in the pockets! We made a similar one for a friend who gardens, with the pockets for a little digger, seeds, gloves, etc. so,practical,and it was a big hit! Thanks for sharing!

This is a great video and it was done very nicely. Covered all steps and made them very clear. This is a good video for a beginer too. I have got to make some of these organizers for all the bedrooms in the house because they are a super great idea to keep things organized. My grand daughter loves reading at night and will love putting her book in this. I will let them pick out their fabric and sewing I will go. How many are in your house?

Really love the idea, you made it very clear in the tutorial but, that music as nice as it is, is too loud, and totally distracting, you find yourself straining to follow the verse when it dims rather than following the instructions. If you make another ( & if it's not too difficult to edit this one) you should choose music without words and have it as background only. I almost turned off the tutorial because of the soundtrack and that's a shame because you gave clear and precise instructions for a very good idea.

Excellent presentation easy to view and steps was easy to follow.

Thank you for your great tutorial. Really Cute and Very helpful. I could not rate it because The video window was in the way. The rating box opens up behind the videos for some reason. I will put my rating here. Rated 5: Mybe Admin will put it in for me. I have this happen on the patterns with Videos, rating box tries to hid on me.

Great tutorial, can't wait to make a couple of these for gifts. Thank you for sharing I'm a beginner sewer and this is easy enough for me.

love it intend to make one to keep my kniting and crochet projects

Excellent instructions. Not wanting to sound ungrateful for the FREE instructions, but I have to agree about the music. Sorry :( But, music aside, EXCELLENT instructions and EXCELLENT VIDEO. Thank you!

i watched your book cover video; you are a good instructor; voice is great; once again, the music was distracting; had to turn the voice off. please stick to sewing video and not music. thank you ; beautiful work; pgh. phyl

THANK YOU!!! this will help my mother who is bedridden.

@maybelledd 0511679, All of our projects are user-submitted and we unfortunately only received a video tutorial for this project. We suggest contacting the original designer for more guidance. You can find her name in the byline of this project. --Editor of AllFreeSewing

I would like to have the actual pattern not a tutorial. It is hard to watch and do at the same time.

This looks like it would be very handy. A great place to stick a package of Kleenex and above all my glasses!
