DIY : Hanging Bed Organizer

If you have no bedside tables in your bedrooms and are looking for a cute way to store the little things you want to keep close such as books, eyeglasses and notepads, I suggest that you consider the Hanging Bed Organizer!

If you, or someone you know are living in the UK, you can order it directly on the Higgo’s site (this is a UK website).

Otherwise, you can check this DIY pattern I came across in the Sew Mama Sew blog.

To make this beautiful hanging bed organizer, you’ll need:

  • 2/3 yard of a single fabric
  • 3 1/2 yards double-fold seam binding
  • a 20×10 strip non-skid rug pad
  • thread

First, use your fabric to cut a 20″ wide x  48″ long strip.

Fold the fabric in half lengthwise. Stitch across the short side to make a loop, the turn right side out and lay it flat. Press folded ends . Finish one folded edge with double-fold seam binding.

Fold the bound edge up by 8″ to make a pocket, then trim the bottom corners of the pocket off into a quarter-round.

Cut a 9″ length of seam binding. Slip one cut edge under the binding on the pocket edge and stitch it vertically onto the front as a divider to form two pockets. Trim excess.

Use the remaining single length of seam binding to finish the 2 long sides and the bottom, following the rounded corners. Trim excess seam binding and reserve.

Make a sandwich with either the rest of your seam binding or a strip of scrap fabric on top, the 20″ by 10″ strip of rubberized shelf liner/non-skid rug pad in the middle, and the top edge of the organizer on the bottom (the seam binding keeps the shelf liner from sticking to your presser foot). This is the trick…it keeps the pocket from sliding out from between the mattress when you slip in a couple of books.

Slip it between your mattress and box spring and load it up!
