The hardest part of having a locker is keeping it organized throughout the year, but you can make it a bit easier by making your student personalized locker organizer. This project is loaded with plenty of pockets for storage, pencil\pen holder, and even a frame that can hold your favorite photo or small mirror. The finished size is 8 1/2 ”; x? 30 1/2″; and is hung with magnetic clips, so it should fit almost any locker size.

Cotton Fabric:

Cargo Fabric:


Once cut, fuse interfacing to the wrong side of cotton fabric.

All seam allowances are 1/2″; unless otherwise specified.

Measure 1 1/4″; away from all edges and mark, creating a square. Mark the center with an “;X”;

Cut across the “;X”; from each corner of the square. Do not cut out the square.

Press and fold back the triangle flaps to the wrong side of the frame. Remove any excess fabric that hangs outside the edge of the frame.

Repeat the above steps for the second frame piece.

Fold back the frame pieces so that they are wrong sides together and press. Match the finished inner edges and edgestitch around the inner opening only?as pictured below. If desiredlace pillowcases, baste the raw edges of the outer frame. Set aside.

For the top edge of the pencil pocket (4 1/2″;) under 1/4″; and press. Fold again by 1/4″;, creating a narrow finished edge. Edgestitch close to finished edge.

With right sides together, place the frame and pencil pocket together, so that the finished edges are at the top and sew along the side. Press seams toward the pencil pocket.

Hi everyone! My name is Nancy Mahoney and I’ve been making quilts for over 30 years. My early quilts were hand quilted. However, for the last 20 years or so, all of my quilts have been machine quilted. When quilting with my BERNINA 790 I use a variety of techniques, including the BERNINA Walking-foot # 50 and free-motion quilting. Today, I’m going to show you how to quilt a unique design using your walking foot and my easy No-Mark method. If you’ve been wanting to use your walking foot for more than just straight lines, but have been reluctant to try free-motion quilting, this method is for YOU!
