DIY Denim Pocket Organizer // EASY, FUN AND SUPER CUTE!

2 Materials
5 Minutes

We found this Pinterest pin that says we can easily make our own super cute wall organizer from nothing but an old pair of jeans and an embroidery hoop. Is it really that easy? Watch and find out.
The first thing we did was find an old pair of jeans we didn't mind cutting a back pocket out of. I bought mine at the Goodwill store for $2! I also purchased my embroidery hoop from Amazon and with my best pair of fabric scissors and I was ready to go!
Once you've chosen your sacrificial jeans, place the embroidery hoop over the pocket and cut around the hoop. Make sure you use the OUTER hoop to measure so that you have enough excess denim to cover the whole hoop.
After you're done cutting, place the denim between the inner and outer hoops and screw the whole thing until everything is nice and tight.
Finally, cut off all the excess denim.
Put something in the pocket and there you go!
Your very own Denim Pocket Organizer! Pintrusted! :)

    Do you use a different hoop for each pocket or the same one? How do you mount them on the wall? Love the idea.

    My husband wears out every part of his jeans but his pockets. I'm definitely going to do this...and find some way to use his front pockets too. I hate to waste anything.
