Project #4......Dresser Organizer & Charging Station

So admittedly, this project was not one of my favorites. Though it was really easy, even with having to machine quilt the interior, it just wasn't functional for me. I omitted the cut out for the cords to come through if you were going to use it as a charging station...that just made no sense for me. I decided to make it to hold all of Taylor's hair ribbons instead. The instructions were easy to follow and accurate. Though it is cute, and serves a purpose, I probably won't be making another one of these. Good old baskets from the store are a much cheaper, and less time consuming option.

I am not going to give it all away but here is what you need to complete this project.....

  • One yard of fabric....duh
  • 1/2 yard of lightweight fusible interfacing
  • 1/2 yard of fusible fleece
  • 1/4 yard of heavyweight interfacing
  • A good ruler
  • Patience to REALLY read though the directions
  • "One yard wonders....101 sewing projects" by Rebecca Yaker & Patricia Hoskins

Project #5 will be up on March 11th!


  1. this looks great...good to know what you think. holding hair ribbons and bows is a good job though.

  2. I agree. Seems quite time consuming. At least it'll look great in Taylor's room. Excellent choice on the use!

  3. It does look great!! This is a fantastic idea for a blog by the way, I just bought the book and it's interesting to hear other people's experiences with the patterns before I make them myself.

  4. every time I read the pattern I just hold my head and turn the page because it just seems too time consuming and too many steps!! I do like the idea of using it for a charging station though, but i will have to come up with an alternative!!
