It’s Time to Reveal Our U-Pick Sewing Project for May 2022

Welcome back to our U-Pick Sewing series! Are you ready to see what the winning project is? I hope you got a chance to vote every day because it’s voting is over and I’ll only have time to sew up one of these ideas and write the pattern for you.

I always spend a lot of time trying to pick the projects to let you vote from. I want them to be useful, essential items that we can’t be without. Sometimes readers send me ideas that I have to add to the voting too.

So which project do you think won?

Remember, I haven’t made this yet or written the tutorial. You’ll have to give me a few weeks to work on it before I share the tutorial or pattern here on my blog.

During the week when I checked on the voting results, I wasn’t always sure which one would win. For a while the clear packing cube was way ahead.

But by Sunday night the Hang Up Organizer was a clear winner!

My Ideas for Sewing This Project

The shape and construction of our inspiration organizer look easy to make. I know that I can make it a lot cuter with my own favorite fabrics!

It looks like they used a cotton (or cotton blend) canvas and mesh fabric for some of the pockets.

We will have the freedom to use canvas fabric like they did, or use quilting cotton fabric with some fusible intefacing like Pellon SF101.

The hanging feature is probably my favorite thing about organizer. I already have a lot of clear command hooks that I think will be perfect. Then I can hang it anywhere in my house.

Come to think of it, this would be great hanging on my pegboard too. I’ll have to sew a few!

Here are the specific materials I plan to use:

  • Regular quilting cotton, a cotton linen blend, or cotton canvas (lots of different fabrics will work great for this project).
  • If I use a thin fabric like quilting cotton, I’ll fuse Pellon SF101 interfacing to the back.
  • Optional: For some of the pockets, I’ll use mesh fabric from ByAnnie. It makes a beautiful pocket when you sew fold over elastic to the top edge.
  • In order to hang this organizer on the wall, we’ll need an extra large eyelet. If you don’t already have some that you like, my favorite kind are from Dritz. We’ll need the extra large size. Make sure you buy a package that includes the tools if you don’t already have them.

Please let me know what you think in the comments below.

Watch for my unique version of this hanging organization station in about a week. Then give me a week or so after that to draft the pattern and share it here on my blog. Make sure you are signed up for my free newsletter so you don’t miss it. You will be able to get the free printable PDF on that one day only! Of course you can also catch it later in my shop and I’ll also put it in the library of all the Optimized for Printing PDF Files.

    I am very happy this project won. I am looking forward to making 3 of them. One for the kitchen for mail. One for the bedroom for a book and notebook. One for the bathroom beside the toilet. And maybe one for the laundry room. That makes 4. Great project!
