HANGING
SHOE STORAGE

Originally published by Workbasket Magazine in July 1952, the Hanging Shoe Storage Bag is still widely used today. It’s the perfect accessory for a dorm room, a great Mother’s Day gift, or make one for yourself!

          Start by selecting the two main fabrics. Then choose a fun pattern to use for the Cleaner Pocket. Check your scraps! We all       have plenty of pieces that size.

  2. Thought I commented on this but it's not showing up so --
    this is a great pattern. As Catherine said, it can hold all sorts of items. I used one when I taught school to hold various things - one for paper clips, tape, dry erase markers, etc.

  8. I've used a clear shoe organizer for years to hold all the small packet~ type items in the kitchen for years.
    Also I used one in my daughter's bedroom door for all her Barbie`s and clothes. As she grew out of the Barbie stage, I put it behind the bathroom door for all the bathroom items that my daughter used as a teen. It's still in that bathroom but I now use it for bath hand towels, washcloths, extra bathroom items, hairbrush, even a cool hairdryer.. Also if you place a hard plastic glass in the pockets you can place hair items, bobbie pins, etc. and it's very easy to get your items out.

  11. Fabulous fun for Oma's playroom! Not only would it be great for storing odds and ends; but it would make a great mailbox for notes and special treats for your loved ones.

  13. We use a hanging shoe bag when we travel....hang it on the bathroom door and put all your toiletries (I made it with mesh so I could see the contents, but you could probably embroider labels too). Hotels are notorious for not having enough counter space so this is very handy.....and when you're ready to go home, we just fold it up and put it in the suitcase (after we ziplock anything that could potentially spill). My daughters are leaving for college soon and so I was looking for a pattern or some new ideas to make them ones...dorm rooms don't exactly have extra space! I'll be putting a long pocket, lined with the heat proof fabric (can't recall the name right now, but they use it for ironing boards) to put their curling iron into. When I made mine years ago, I made the pockets different sizes based on what I needed to put in them.
