Recycled Jean Accessory Orgaziner

Recycled Jean Accessory Organizer Collage

Recycled Jean Accessory Organizer

Hats off to my mom for this original design!  I had fun doing all the embellishments on the pockets and hanger but the overall ingenious design for this hanging accessory organizer featuring the screen for earrings, recycled belt loops for scarves, recycled jean buttons for necklaces, and recycled denim pockets and zippers for bracelets, sunglasses, and shoes was all her!  She wakes up thinking of this stuff!

So thanks mom, for including me on this truly awesome recycled jean accessory organizer and letting me share it with Joyful Daisy readers 🙂  Time to have fun and get organized in style!

GATHER YOUR SUPPLIES…

Assorted old jeans

Assorted fabrics for piecing and the back

Nice wood hanger

Piece of batting for top part of hanger

Piece of soft screen

OPTIONAL EMBELLISHING…acrylic paints, wool yarn and needle felting supplies, bedazzler and studs

LET’S GET STARTED SHALL WE…

Deconstruct jeans…

Cut waistband with belt loops. Remove pockets and cut backs out.  Cut off legs as high up as you can without cutting pockets.

Recyceld Jean Accessory Organizer Hanger

To make pattern for hanger, place a sturdy wooden hanger on paper and trace. (News paper works)

Measure 1 1/2″ around outer edge of hanger and mark for cutting line.

Draw a line along the bottom edge and mark 2 inches down and draw your cutting line.

Recyceld Jean Accessory Organizer Hanger Cover Layers

You will need three layers from pattern piece- jean, backing, and padding for middle layer (This is a recycled old mattress pad.  You can use quilt batting.)

Cut batting one inch shorter along the bottom straight edge.

Layer padding, backing right side up, and jean layer right side down as shown above.

Sew with 1/2″ seam allowance leaving 1/2″ open at top notch for hanger.  Sew until 1 1/2″ from bottom edge.

Trim batting and clip curves to turn smoothly.

Cut a piece of soft screen the width of bottom edge of hanger cover by 6 inches long.

Cut 2 pieces of trim 1 1/4″ by width of screen.

 Fold trim in 1/2 length wise, press, place on top and bottom of screen, and sew with 1/4″ seam allowance.

Trim ends, even raw edges of material an raw edge of screen.

Cut 2 pieces of trim 1 1/2″ * 6″.

Fold in half length wise and then fold sides into middle, and iron.

Place ends of screen in middle of fold so material will encase the ends.

Sew along edge.  Trim top and bottom.

Now your screen will have a frame of material around it.

TIME TO EMBELLISH POCKETS AND HANGER COVER…

Decorated Jean pockets for hanging accessory organizer

This is the really fun part and there are so many options for decorating the pockets and hanger cover, I will share a little of what I did…

FELTING…

Place your denim piece on the foam felting block and then be sure to use HEAVY felting needles with your wool yarn or fibers.

PAINTING…

I used a little foam circle stamp dipped in dark purple craft paint to add polka dots.

Then I went over with one side with lavender paint to give it some dimension.

Above I just needled felted a heart and then painted the heart inside using purple and lavender.  Then I had fun painting stripes on the leather pieces of the pocket.

BEDAZZLING…

I just love the multi-media look achieved when using the yarn, paint, and metal studs!

 BACK TO THE BODY OF THE CADDY…

 Piece strips of jean and cotton fabrics to make a rectangle approximately 28″ * 21″ depending on hanger size.  Make sure it is 1″ wider than bottom of hanger cover for seam allowance.

base for recycled jean accessory organizer

Sew down belt loop strip along left side 1″ in.  Make sure to use size 16 sewing machine needle (to prevent breakage).  You can sew it down by hand with a blanket stitch.  When sewing along right edge of belt loop strip do not sew belt loop down.  Instead tack end of loop after sewing along right side between loops.

 Recycled Jean Pocket layout for Accessory Organizer

Decide placement of pockets and buttons and sew.

Iron under bottom edge of the front of hanger cover 1″ and sew to long edge of screen that has been framed with fabric.  Leave 1/4″ of fabric showing.

Fold 1″ and press along bottom edge of back of hanger cover and stitch.  Stitch a 10″ length of ribbon 4″ in from sides of hanger cover on inside so tail end hangs down.  (These will be used to tie back closed after hanger is added.)

 Recycled Jean layers for Accessory Organizer

 Cut lining to match front of pocket section.

With right sides together pin along sides and bottom and sew  with 1/2″ seams.

Fold top down 1/2″ and press.

Tuck screen between top layers and stitch.

NOW LET’S GET ORGANIZED…

You can easily fit 2-3 times more then this in your new caddy.  I am just getting started and wanted to show you how nice it looks loaded 🙂
