This idea originally started out as a place to house my ever-growing collection of buttons and pins that give any old outfit a little boost. But then, as I sat organizing my hair accessories, I realized this simple organizer had many uses. Whether you use it to hold your bobby pins or button pins, this brings a little fun into your regular ways of organization.
For this project, you will need:
1 pair of scissors (the felt will dull fabric scissors)
1 long strip of felt, about 3.5 inches wide (length depends on how much you want it to hold; here mine will be 20 inches long)
A tape measure
A crayon, pencil, or chalk
1 piece of fabric, about 3.5 inches wide and 4 inches long
Fabric markers or paint
Step 1: Draw a line using the straight edge of your tape measure on your felt to ensure you get a straight rectangle. Then, cut out your felt.
Step 2: Choose a cotton fabric or other material that is easy to fold and cut it out. It should be 4 inches long and 3.5 inches wide (or however wide your felt is).
Step 3: Align the patterned fabric against the felt body. Fold the fabric over the top of the felt rectangle and have 2.5 inches on the front and 1.5 inches on the back. Glue down, but leave .5 inch without glue on the bottoms of both sides.
Hope you had a great time!!
P.S.: This is the one that I made to hold my buttons and pins.
