I created this item out of necessity. I wanted something to hang over my sewing table and desk that would hold my most "go to" files. There are files that I use everyday such as book keeping, shop forms, and current projects. After I made it I thought it could be used for so many other things. How perfect to hold a couple magazines or catalogs in the bathroom or bedroom? It would also be great in the kitchen for recipes, bills, and coupons. Finished measurement is 11 1/2 x 14 inches.

It holds up to three file folders or a couple of magazines comfortably and because of the way it's designed, it's very sturdy and strong. I have a similar one that has 8 pockets which I have hanging in my sewing room for the past two years, and it's still as strong and neat looking as the day I made it
