DIY hanging storage pockets

Sew and customise your own wall organiser

Hanging storage pockets give you ample space for all manner of bits and pieces and are good for storing almost anything - from toys to tools. You can even use it as a hallway organiser. The size and shape is down to you and how you want to use it. If you’re good with a sewing machine, you’ll find it a doddle to sew your own. Otherwise, you can buy one ready-made and decorate it to suit your own taste. When it comes to the design part, edding offers a lovely assortment of textile markers in vivid colours. Our example shows a simple striped design, but you can add as much colour as you like. edding textile markers are ideal for many different kinds of light-coloured fabrics, including cotton and linen. There are two stroke widths and a range of 20 colours to choose from, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. And if you iron the fabric afterwards, your design will also withstand wash cycles up to 60°C.
