My new favorite organizational tool!

Sometimes I feel like we're in a constant state of decluttering and trying to organize our things better. I used to keep my shoes in a box, but removed them when I discovered some of them had gotten moldy, so then they were just sitting in a pile on our closet floor. I thought about buying an over-the-door shoe holder, but then thought - I could make that! So I did.

It's been in the works for a couple of weeks now as I got up the motivation to do the two things I don't love about sewing - cutting out and ironing. But I finally finished it - and I am loving this! I used material I already had - I didn't quite have enough of the darker green, so I used a lighter green, too, which I think makes it a bit more interesting looking. The bottom row is bigger pockets which hold one each of larger shoes - like my tennis shoes, and the other rows are smaller pockets which each hold either one shoe or two flip flops. This perfectly holds all my shoes and certainly looks much nicer than the clear plastic one I had thought about buying.

It looks wonderful & don't you just love it when you find a pretty way to organize things ~ I have the "pile" way of keeping shoes!

Love you,
