It's a really fantastic idea! And it looks really nice too. I always find that when my materials are all nicely organised, it's so much easier for inspiration to come Smiley

This is SO TRUE, in all my crafty endeavors!

I'm wisting this, although I might actually get around to making something similar myself... I collect vintage hat boxes and makeup cases (I call them train cases, but not sure that's the right term), and this would help organize my stuff rather than have a big old bucket of thread soup!

Seriously?  Wow. I've never been wisted before!

EDIT: Also, I hear (Simple but Satisfying) in the voice of Pumbaa from The Lion King...the scene where they're eating grubs after singing Hakuna Matata (SLIMY yet satisfying!)....

...but I'm special like that. Carry on!

I had completely forgotten about that -- at least on a conscious level.... Wink

Yup! You can click my wists and see yourself! But do it soon or it will get buried under everything else that I will see and NEED!

From about ages 6 to 10 my nana always had a fat, heart-ish-shaped hat box filled with embroidery floss and scrap fabric for me to learn to sew with. This so reminds me of that! I wonder if she still has that box somewhere. It had roses collaged all over it...

I never got into embroidery, but that technique could be used for lots of stuff! Bobbins, pins, my unusually large collection of miniature colored pencils. And a smaller box would be perfect for storing my rat's treats in. I hate having all these little baggies of yogurt drops and little cookies. haha.

Love it!  Great idea, and great way to construct just what you need instead of spending money that could otherwise be spent on more important things, like more floss!   Smiley

This rocks!

That's a great idea. My floss is every where. I've been trying to come with a good storage idea.
