The Constance Organizer Tutorial


Constance Organizer Tutorial by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

It's been an exhausting week here at our home. My daughters have been fighting a nasty bug that comes with endless high fevers, and it's been a constant battle to keep their temperatures below 101 degrees. Blogging and blog reading naturally fell by the wayside for the past few days, so I missed the posting of my latest piece for The Glamorous Housewife blog. I promised you all a tutorial for that organizer I showed you last week. Here it is: the Constance Organizer.

This version is slightly different from last week's. It has an extra pocket on the left side of the interior, a flap closure, and a much simpler exterior. The basic pattern is no problem to customize, though, so you can easily change this to make it whatever you want. That's the beauty of patterns for me -- I love to play with the details and make something new.

These make great last minute gifts for those of you who are already casting an eye toward Christmas presents. If you make one of these, please do send me pictures or mark a photo with #fabricmutt on instagram. I'd love to see what you're making!

And now I'd better head back to the couch to sit with my sick little Bear as we watch the never ending Handy Manny marathon that's been parading through my living room all week. Remember this old Calvin and Hobbes cartoon? Once in a while I share the same feeling for those who write children's programming. Not that I'm bitter or anything...

  7. I know this is an older post, but I just found this pattern and really like it. Do you have the finished dimensions available? I couldn't see them here or on the other blog with the tutorial.

    I'm an old fashioned letter writer and I like to carry supplies at all times so I can write when I find myself stuck in a waiting room or some place similar. This pattern looks just about perfect for what I'm looking for! I could tuck everything I need inside and slip in my my purse. Thanks for sharing!
