My daughter had a bright idea the other day – she’d outgrown the length, but not the waistline on a pair of jeans, so she cut off about 6-inches from the legs and created a cool pair of frayed capris. I couldn’t pass up working with the remnant pieces and that was when “The Office Pocket” was born…
A cuff from a pair of jeans is now helping me to keep my desk clear of clutter.
A Magnetic Bulldog Clip holds my new office pocket to my magnet board.
Just turn cuff inside out, sew cut end closed, turn right side out and clip pocket to your fridge or magnet board with a Magnetic Bulldog Clip (available at office supply stores – they're about $4.00 for a 3-pack).
I found that keeping the pocket long and folding it to the length I wanted gave me more flexibility. If I want to use the pocket to hold my headphones, I can leave the pocket long.
The Bulldog clip is very strong and will even hold up a heavier item, like my headphones.
Keep it long or roll it short, this easy-to-make pocket is a handy way to keep clutter off of your work surface.
