For this project you need…


  • Cutting mat
  • 18″ x 14″ fabric rectangle
  • 8″ x 6″ fabric rectangle
  • 20″ semi rigid plastic
  • 3yd of bias
  • Measuring tape
  • Metal ruler
  • Rotary cutter
  • Paper scissors
  • Little scissors
  • Pins
  • A bag handgrip
  • Thread
  • Marker
  • Special leather needles

Step 1:

Put the plastic on the fabric and mark it at the same width. Then cut it with your paper scissors.

Step 2:

Mark 5″ on the left and right sides of the fabric, mark a line along and cut 3 rectangles.

Step 3:

Put bias on the top of each rectangle.

Step 4:

Now place the bias and sew with zig-zag stitch.

  • Remember to use the special needle.
  • We recommend the zig-zag stitch because it can cover all the width of the bias.

Do the same in the 3 plastics.

Step 5:

Attach each bag from the lower part of the fabric.

Fold the plastic 1cm and sew it with zig-zag stitch.

And repeat the same procedure with the 3 bags.

Let's sew the divisions of our organizer.

Step 6:

For this step, use your hand as a reference of the size.

Then sew the divisions with a straight stitch.


Step 7:

Now put the bias all around and sew it with straight stitch

When you are finishing, fold the bias and give reinforcement stitches.

Now let’s put the handgrip.

Step 8:

First mark the width of your handgrip and cut.

Step 9:

Wrap the bottom of the handgrip with the fabric, give 1.5″ and cut.


Step 10:

Center the handgrip on the organizer.

Make a sandwich with the fabrics on the back and front of the organizer.

Step 11:

Fold the fabric and pin it.

  • You have to fold it in both sides.

Step 11:

Finally, attach the handgrip by sewing with a zig-zag stitch.
