so i just graduated from college & have really been focusing on my sewing & i wanted to share with all of you some of my organization items that rock.....
here are a few reasons why
1. i am the least organized person i know & i can actually keep up with these
2. everything u see here was either free or scavenged from random stuff around the house
3. i have not misplaced my scissors in a LONG time; what a stress reliever
4. "everything has a home".......or something
here we go.........
i was swooning over the $10 seam rippers at the store & realized i can make my mini-seam ripper i already have more ergonomic with a pencil hugger..........yay!
i needed an easy assessable area for all my my tiny patterns i make out of newsprint..........so i took a cracker/cereal box & cut out a "V" in front & tapered the front a bit & then covered it in brown paper from a shopping bag...........yay! go recycling
i can not take credit for the next idea, i saw it here on craftster done with a yard stick (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77989.0
) .....i didn't have one of those .... SO i took a super skinny scrap from out laminate flooring en devours & did the same thing for my threads
my boyfriend took inspiration the yard stick shelf & actually improved upon the idea. he screwed a slim piece of wood into the wall making it MUCH more durable and awesome all around. i proceeded to used tacks & pins to hold items of inspiration and to make a 'hook" hold my thread clipping scissors above my ironing board and my bias tape maker .....the lil red bag dangling has some vintage buttons that actually match....i have a HUGE box of random buttons.....so when i find button friends i throw them in there for when i need them
this next pic features a shelf the boyfriend installed all from stuff we found on the side of the road....(well all except the screws)......we had to extend the ol' shelf after we finished because the T.V. we found in a dumpster (that's right; a dumpster) wouldn't fit safely........may i just add the TV works most excellently & has a fancy new digital converter box & everything.........
and now........my favorite & newest improvement in my sewing hut
the scissors & remote/cell phone holsters!!! hooray!!!!!
i used tacks on the underside of the sewing machine table to secure the fabric.
seriously the best move ever! i can easily reach these items while sitting at my sewing table
phew! that was alot..........
thanks for looking, i hope this inspires all of you!
questions & comments are thrived upon!
