With Christmas behind us, it seems like everyone is in full “I must organize my entire house” mode. I am guilty of this myself. It’s nice to have a new year and a fresh start to all of those pesky little things we hope to change in our lives. One of those things for me is organizing our electronics. Specifically my daughters. Last year my husband and I felt that she was mature enough to get her own phone. Well, a new phone also meant an extra phone charger and phone cases lying around. With this months Junk Revision Challenge being all about organizing, I felt this would be the perfect time to make an electronic organizer case for a teen.
I started with this cute little suitcase that used to be mine as a child.
Because the picture on the front of the suitcase wasn’t exactly screaming out mature young lady, I decided to cover it up with denim. I simply cut the leg off of an old pair of jeans.
Once your denim is cut down to size add an even layer of mod podge covering the entire top of the suitcase.
After your denim or fabric is in place, cut around the edges leaving just enough fabric to be pushed into the seam of the suitcase. I found that an exacto knife worked well for this.
After the edges were secure inside of the seam, I went ahead and mod podged the edges just to make sure it wouldn’t come apart.
Sticking with the denim theme, I added pockets to the inside of the suitcase by using a pair of my sons ripped up old jeans.
I cut along the seams of the pants and just hot glued the pockets right onto the suitcase.
The pockets are the perfect spot to hold her tablet, phone and charger.
She can also keep her headphones, wallet and any other goodies in the bottom part of the suitcase.
I hope this helps her keep her electronics a little more organized from now on. I might even need to make myself one.
