From the Archives - Sew-It-Yourself Shoe Organizer Tutorial

This was a post from my very first month of blogging. It's one of those things that I still use - although it works better for my two youngest kids shoes, since my older two are getting so big.

Want to make your own?

Check out my original tutorial: Sew It Yourself - Shoe Organizer

The tutorial is for kids shoes. I had a question about an adult sized organizer. In the comments of my original post, I've shared a cut list for an adult sized shoe organizer. As far as I know, it has not been tested, but if you try it I'd love to know if the measurements are accurate.

One thing I would warn you of, is the sticky backed hooks that I used in the tutorial didn't last. After a few months they started falling off.  I ended up buying two over the door hooks and with the dowel in the top it works just fine.

How do you keep your shoes organized?


  1. I love this. My 4 yr old is a huge fan of pink. I am going to have to make her one. I found you through Craft-O-Maniac.

  2. This is so awesome! We would love it if you shared it to our linky party!

  3. I like this! I've made one with vinyl before, but not just coordinating cotton. I like it!
