    Bed pocket organizer for grandson

    Name:  image.jpg
Views: 1345
Size:  872.5 KBMy grandson who is 3 loved this.there is room for a flashlight and a water bottle. I have two more to make. Very simple to make, great idea for adults to have less clutter on an end table to store a book etc.

    Very cute. I love the concept. How are you keeping it in place? Does it go all the way from one side to the other?

    It's 18" in length, pockets are 9"x9", I also used batting as well as the yellow backing. I pleated the pockets so he could stuff his animals in. About 8" is tucked between the mattresses. I knew he wouldn't be putting anything to heavy in it. A shelf liner can be sewn along the top for extra "stick" power.

    that is too cute, what a wonderful idea
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thank you for sharing. I love this idea. I have novelty prints left over from making pillowcases that may work for this project.

    I made one for my 11 year old granddaughter for her kindle and books and she loved it. Her brother and sister wanted one so I made one for each of them and they are all very happy with them.
