Do you have enough closet space?
We used to.
Really we did.
Then we moved here to Raleigh.
It's a much smaller, nifty (town)house.
We "lost" a big walk-in closet.
A closet so big that my grown son, Jordan, jokingly asked
if he could move in to that "room."
No big problem though.
We gained an attic for storage of the non-essential, day to day things that
used to live in our walk-in.
We also lost wall space where our shoe racks had hung.
For a year+ now, our shoes have been scattered,
smothered and covered around our bedroom.
(Are ya hungry now?)
So I decided to utilize the space on the closet's louver doors!!!
I made a pattern.
Well, really I just wrote the dimensions up.
These shoe hangers have to fit in 12" wide spaces.
I then commenced to tearing fabric.
I tear fabric for straight lines.
Easier and much more accurate than cutting 'em.
Using all black and white fabric.
I made up how to construct these as I went along.
Hopefully I can make the other 3 the same way.
There's a slat of wood in a pocket at the top to help hold it flat.
Drapery hooks are in the back to aid in hanging them
over the old, broken over the door hangers.
How do you like this fabric?
My friend Tara mentioned that JoAnn Craft and Fabrics had Star Trek fabrics.
I was having a fit to find an "excuse" to buy some.
Adding a bit of embroidery to jazz it up a bit.
Using the 3 "official" uniform colors.
Did you know that the highest ranking Star Fleet Officers' uniforms were actually a green-yellow color?
The camera made them look golden!
Live long and Prosper.
I gotta get back to assembling these shoe hangers before
forget how I did the first one!
