My newly re-organized craft space!
I love to organize almost as much as I love sewing and crafting. It is so calming to me when everything is in its place. I had a blast working on this...even though there were a few mini meltdowns when things didn't work. But I pushed through and got to a point where I was satisfied.
I printed these super cute embroidery thread cards from Craft Chi and taped them to pieces of Manila folder. I thought it was a great idea, especially for my small amount of floss.
I used my Great-grandmother's sewing box to store my small collection of embroidery floss.
These wooden thread bobbins belonged to my Great-Grandmother. I inherited her collection of sewing supplies and fabrics. I love the mixture of colors in this!
I needed a spot to keep my ribbons, so I made this! I have seen many tutorials on ribbon storage so I modified this Ribbon box. I used a box that had Christmas cards in it and was very sturdy.
I decoupaged the top only because the bottom was a cool blue. I used knitting needle to hold the ribbon for lack of a better solution. I am going to get a wooden dowel eventually...but I kinda like the effect of the needle.
My sewing cabinet that I found on craigslist! I love it because it folds up, allowing me to sill move around the room.
I love the pegboard storage inside the cabinet because its perfect for my scissors and rulers.
I put and old CD tower in the cabinet and I am going to sew fabric boxes for each cubby
The ceiling was so bare! So I hung up some fabric that inspires me. The good thing about doing this...I can change the fabric whenever I feel like it!
There is still a lot I want to do to this area. I love my solid wooden chest of drawers, but I need more jars for the top of it. I also want to decoupage the mail holder and maybe paint the chest of drawers? What do you think?
My fabric stash in a semi-organized state. Eventually I would like to have it in bins or Fabric Organizers
And them some simple decorations. I haven't knit in ages, but I love my needle collection!
I saw this embroidery hoop display tutorial over at So Lovely Creations, and I just had to give it a try. I love it and now I want more!
So that's my work in progress. All in all I only spent about $10 doing this! I bought a couple shelves and embroidery hoops. There is so much more I would like to do!
