What You Make of It: Farm Girl Fabric Organizer with Elizabeth Holcombe

Use your favorite fabric scraps to make this lovely “Farm Girl” fabric organizer!

I began with a vintage piece of barkcloth fabric which I washed to get lovely soft frayed edges. I hemmed the top on case I want to slip in a dowel and attach string and hang from a hook.


Take six (or more!) rectangular fabric scraps and six small scraps. Fold the larger pieces (wrong sides together) to form a “pocket” and sew the cut edges together. Pink the sewn edges. Then sew the smaller scrap to the pocket. Sew the pockets to the large piece of fabric.

Then cute scraps of paper, write your labels, and use safety pins to attach them to the pockets. Then you can change the labels! Your organizer is perfect for sewing notions, art supplies, recipes, and so much more! Have fun!

Elizabeth Holcombe Fedorko, aka Bethsbagz, began her checkered crafting career when at four she realized using paste on paper was better than eating it. Inspired by vintage dime store treasures, vintage fabric, and a no-fear attitude toward color, Beth crafts totes, pin cushions, wreaths, and corsages into her Dime Store Chic creations. Beth would love you to take a peek into her whimsical world at her blog.
