Depending on what you intend to use your organizer for will determine the size of the pockets you make. We made a organizer to go on the back of the door that will fit in slippers, scarfs and whatever else needs clearing up. For shoe pockets you need to make sure that the pockets are deep enough to prevent the shoes from toppling out. We made these pockets 6 inch deep.

  1. ruined a good pair of jeans :(

  2. hi love it

  3. Love IT!!!!!!!

  4. I love your idea. It makes a great wall pocket organizer. I’m always looking for something new to do with my crafts. I try to think up all kinds of things to make. Sometimes they turn out , sometimes they don’t. But I keep trying.

  5. I know this is a great idea. I made two several years ago and am still using them. I ripped open the inside seam of the legs and cut the jeans apart by the zipper and the back seam. I made pockets of different fabrics and decorated with buttons.

  6. Why? wouldn’t it be a waste of jeans even if they are old or just don’t fit you could give them as second hand or summin…

  7. It’s ugly, and looks awkward to use.

  8. i will hang a pair in the laundry room to catch all the stuff that gets left there or forgotten in someones pockets I think its a great idea and thanks hubby for donating your jeans

  9. that’s a great idea! i may alter it a little though…just to add some flare :D

  10. Good idea. I’m going to run with it and see what I can do. Thanks. And it’s not “butt ugly.”

  11. It will look better with half of the pants and use the pockets that come on the jeans as the storge

  12. would look ok in the garage or workshop

  13. eww sorry its ugly

  14. sorry but eew

  15. It is so HOT.. AND& When i make it i’m gonna decorate it with scrap materials and beads… LOVIN It ♥
