Spring, is it here for you? We had snow today but that is not going to dampen my spring spirit. It time again for a good ole spring cleaning of the sewing/crafting space. Take a look around your space and inventory what needs a little help. Start with the biggest project first….yep get it out of the way. Everything else will seem easy after that. Get creative with your storage, think outside the box. Here a few ideas and tips to find just the right way to store your goodies.
CD Storage Bins: They make a great storage area for fat quarters.
Chip Clips: Pattern storage
Store your paper pattern pieces with chip clips. Make it easy to find your pattern and store them. These clips can be found at your local craft store, dollar store or large mart. Find the kind that may have a hole in order to screw it into your wall. I have mine place on a small wall area where they would not be in the way. Place 3 or 4 in a row.
Ribbon & Trims: Drawers, lot of drawers.
I have tried all sorts of containers for ribbons but found these drawers to work the best for the amount of ribbon I collect. Find a container that fits your space and the amount of ribbon or trims you have. Boxes, curtain rods & drawers tend to work the best. What ideas have you used?
Organize your fabric according to color and type. This will make it easier to find exactly what you are looking for. Store seasonal fabric in clear containers to save space. Make sure to put your favorite fabric in the open to inspire your next project.
Tip: Look around for containers that are colorful and fun. Think outside the box for storage that may not normally be used in a craft/sewing room. Most of all, find storage that inspires you.
