I have 12, yes... 12 tote boxes filled with crafting things and no organization whatsoever.
So this years resolution is to Organize all my crafting supplies and destash my scraps. I was able to do them all at once!
So here it is:
1st, I had no sewing machine cover. Well, I DID have one, but it misappeared! So I took this pretty pink patterned material and off-white corduroy that I had cut into strips for a previous project and the lightbulb went off in my head! This would make the prettiest shabby chic sewing machine cover!
Fully lined with a remnant I had leftover and just happened to be more than enough for the lining.
Since I rarely unplug my machine, I had to make an opening for the plugs.
Since I was already started I decided to finish off the pretty pink patterned material and made a new pin cushion. I had a monster one I made before, but my kids kept playing with it and the pins kept disappearing! It needed to be up high and away from kiddos. So I made it a hanging pin cushion that I can put up high when I am not using it.
I had to then make a needle holder! It is not easy to get needles out of the little paper and plastic sleeve they come in. I inevitably end up poking myself every time. Also hanging to keep out of small children's hands.
Both hanging together
The batting inside the pin cushion and the needle holder is also a destash leftover from when my MIL was helping me reupholster my kitchen chairs two summers ago. I decided to zig zag the edges on this project so it would not look too much like it should be a prop for Steel Magnolias. LOL!
I am almost out of the pink, but I have enough to make a needle roll for my crochet hooks and for my knitting needles.
By the end of the year I will be down at least to 10 boxes
and have the entire room organized!
