Kids Closet Organizer Tutorial
Mom, where are my pants? I don’t like that shirt. Silly, undies first, then pants. 🙂
But I have some good news!
save time while getting dressed
Yep…that’s how I roll! 🙂
(Please note: the letters will need to be mirrored when you print them!)
Then it was time to place the fabric transfer paper into the printer.
Place the paper line side up so the letters print on the plain, unmarked side.
After I printed them all out, I cut them out.
I placed the sweater cubby on top of my ironing board
and then placed the letter inside, image side down.
After I had a little trouble with the first letter I realized that I needed
to iron on a hard surface, so I grabbed a wood cutting
board and placed that on top of the ironing board and then the sweater
organizer on top of that. Hope that makes sense.
I repeated this step until the letter was completely attached to cubby fabric.
Double check edges, they can be tricky.
The last step was to remove the transfer backing and reveal my letters.
I couldn’t wait to hang it in little man’s closet and try it out.
Some of the letters have jagged edges because they didn’t transfer completely.
I guess that is technically an oops.
But I actually like that…I think it added a little character. 🙂
Are you wondering how little man will reach Monday’s clothes all on his own?
I did too until I remembered his little step.
The little two-step fits perfectly in the closet
and now he can easily reach his clothes, Monday through Friday.
The only item I had to buy for this project was the fabric transfer paper.
I used a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby and paid a total of $3.48 for this new organizer.
I have a feeling though that the amount of time and stress this organizer
saves us each morning will make it totally priceless!

Wildly Original linky party is open.
Best. Idea. Ever. I think I need one of these for myself! I’m pinning this! Thanks for sharing this idea, visiting from SITS.
What a clever idea! This is going to make our lives in the morning sooo much easier. I’m so glad that I’m following you:)
The labels totally make this! Awesome!
Not only is this CUTE, it’s super useful!! LOVE IT!!
Thanks for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!
This is totally what I do! It works pretty well. I have plastic instead that fabric, so maybe I should adhere some letters to the back so that the days of the week enable them to start planning for themselves.
What a great idea. I have a very similar organizer in the closet not being used. I would love to have you come join my Get Social Sunday party and show off your awesome blog! http://alivedinhome.blogspot.com/2012/09/get-social-sunday.html
What a great idea! My boys would love something like this! We’d love for you to link this up at our party! http://housewivesofriverton.blogspot.com/2012/09/riverton-housewives-round-up-31.html
I have one of these except I stuffed it full of my private yarn stash. They are really versatile.
We have a travel trailer that has wardrobe closets instead of drawers. This is perfect for organizing my little guys’ clothes while we camp. No more jumbled mess in the bottom of the closet! Great idea 🙂
This is exactly what we do to help with th emorning clothing fights. It’s helped so much!
