Craft Organizer From Cat Food Bags

A while back a fellow TF reader mentioned making a organizer from a catfood bag. That got me going and here is the one I made. I turned mine wrong side out, measured up from the bottom the length I wanted my pockets, sewed a zigzag stitch across the bag on my sewing machine. Cut the front layer only. Be sure to cut through the folds in the sides, but not through the back.


Your larger items will fit in the side compartments and by sliding the folded pleat on the sides toward the center you can give your next compartment more room.

Next I turned my catfood bag and sewed lengthwise up to the cut. Then turn it back and sew across just above the cut. Repeat for each row. Slip a hanger in the top and sew it in. You could reinforce your horizontal seams with seam binding if you are putting heavy items in it.

I would like to make a shoe holder out of one of my large size pedigree dog food bags. I am going to try it. I will have to sew by hand though. Thanks so much for inspiring me...I love recycling things, and this is a great way to do it! Robyn
