D-I-Y : Shoe Hanger from Fabric

Hi Guys!! We've made it to another week of my D-I-Y Tuesday. Todays' project is inspired by my mother :-) She's the one i got my "creativity" from. Soo , i went to her house and saw something hanging in the corner .. then i got closer and realized it was a shoe hanger she made from fabric :-) As you know I've dubbed myself a "Frugalista" and as i always say ( well sometimes) " Why buy what you can make ? This project is super quick and inexpensive.You will need :

  • Fabric ( from an old dress , shirt or whatever else you don't wear anymore")
  • A pair of scissors
  • Needle and Thread
  • Card Board ( or any other similar material)
  • Glue

Step 1 

Cut a large piece of the fabric in large square or rectangle. This will be the base of you shoe hanger. The size of the square depends on the amount of the shoes you want to hang so its up to you.

Step 2 

Cut smaller pieces of rectangles. Be sure to bear in mind the size of your shoes. Make sure they are not too big or small. You can simply place your shoes on the fabric. Then cut around it. These will serve as the "pockets" that your shoes will go into.

Step 3

Sew the small pockets onto the large rectangle /square base fabric. Be sure to do the "machine stitch" so that it will be more sturdy. If you have a sewing machine , that's even better.

Step 4

At the top of the rectangle or square , sew what looks like a little handle. This will be to hang your new shoe hanger. Now , in order to give the shoe hanger a "backbone" , simply glue it onto the cardboard , so that it will hang better.

Step 5
Add your shoes! And you are good to go :-)

I hope that i have inspired at least ONE person to go out and be creative. Above all .. be confident :-)
