There's another fabulous and must-have accessory in my car thanks to you! You voted for me to figure out how to sew this hanging organizer... and here it is!
Some of your suggestions included a vinyl pocket that can be used to hold an iPad, a mesh pocket, and a way to secure the bottom of the organizer to keep it from swinging.
Of course, the iPad idea will work best if your iPad connects to your car's speakers via Bluetooth so the kids can hear it.
I decided to make the organizer modular, meaning each pocket section is prepared separately and then sewn together.
You can decide to make the front part vinyl, mesh, or fabric.
That also means you don't have to make just two (although that's the perfect number for a car organizer). You may sew together 3, 4, 5, or more pocket units to make as long an organizer as you want. Each finished 'pocket unit' is 10'' tall and 12'' wide.
Here is the modular pocket organizer hanging from the back of the front passenger seat in my car. I found that sewing a bottom panel with grommets was the best way to keep it from moving around. I used small bungee cords hooked onto the grommets and secured under the seat.
If you are not planning to hang your organizer from the back of a seat, or don't feel that you need a grommet panel like this, you can choose not to sew one.
Over the next week I'm going to sew a Modular Pocket Organizer with fabric pockets to show you how that looks. I also want to put the grommet panel at the top so I can hang it from a wall using Command hooks. This is going to be so awesome!
Next Wednesday I'll have the tutorial ready for you... including step by step photos for each kind of pocket and all of the extras! Sign up for my newsletter so you don't miss it. :)
