CD organizer

I've been trying to figure out a good way to organize all of our CD's and finally came up with this. I keep all of our music in a huge CD case, but will keep the ones I want to listen to that week and a few of the kids CD's in this organizer for easy access. We don't really have a place to hang it right now, but eventually I want to have one hanging on the wall next to an old CD player that the kids can use so they can listen to their music whenever they want to. This project was very easy and very quick!

Start out by cutting eight 5.75"x4" and two 5.75"x13" pieces of felt (you could also use vinyl or any other durable piece of material that won't fray).

On one of the big pieces, mark where to sew the pockets... 1" apart.

Next sew ribbon on top of all of the pieces that will be the pockets.

Starting at the top, sew on the pockets (just a stitch across the bottom).

After the pockets have all been sewed on, put the other large piece on the back and stitch all the way around. If you want it to hang, sew a loop of ribbon on to the top.

And there you have it! CD organization complete in less than an hour. I know you can buy things like this, but it's much cheaper to make. And depending on what fabric or ribbon you use, these could be really cute. I just used what I had lying around.
