I was browsing into an outdoor magazine, looking for camping items. We are getting ready for our camping trip this summer! Since we are using a big tent; I was looking for articles that could help me in the storage area.
I wanted something that I can hang anywhere, something with enough space, something sturdy, something washable, something affordable. After looking though the available items in the catalogue, I ended up creating my own storage thingy.
I used an old yet still sturdy towel, plus scraps of cloths. (I recently turned a few pair of jeans of the girls into shorts and it's a good thing I didn't throw those scraps away.)
an old towel
enough scraps of cloths ( for example, bottoms of jeans)
a pair of scissors
a sewing machine (or you can handsew, too, then you would need needles)
How to create the hanging storage:
First, I cut and sew together two long strips of cloths, at least two inches thick, again using scraps from those jeans. Folding the towel, I fixed the strips of cloths with pins on both ends of the folded towel, this would be the top side.
Then I sew the whole edge of the towel.
Then I created my storage pockets pattern, using the scraps of jeans. I choose colors that would match with my towel. I decided to keep the bottom part of the jeans as openings.
Again, I fixed them with pins.
Then I started sewing the storage pockets.
Here's how the hanging storage looks like.
And in use :-) I stuffed it with different kitchen items, I am glad it held. We are ready to camp!
