I've made a lot of pocket organizers over the years but this is by far my favorite. It's easy, sturdy, functional, and pretty. I use this myself in my studio to keep my projects, special orders, and book keeping in check. This would also be great in a home office or kitchen to hold recipe clippings, coupons, bills, kids' school papers, family mail, etc. It will keep your life organized. It holds 8 file folders but of course you can adjust the pattern to hold as many as you prefer. I chose a decorator fabric because it's a little heavier than your standard 100% cottons. If you use a heavier fabric like that, you won't be having any shifting or bowing while it's hanging. It's easy to make and can be completed in a few hours for the intermediate or advanced seamstress. If you are looking for something with smaller pockets to hold bills, recipes, greeting cards, mail, or almost anything, you can find my smaller version here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/home-decor/wall-organizer-or-christmas-card-holder/27353 BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY sewing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 14" x 40 1/2"
