Coloured Threads

In an attempt to help me be able to find things a bit more easily I've been re-organising my sewing supplies.

I've got two mini chests of drawers from IKEA that I (like many crafters around the world, I suspect!) use for storing my small bits and bobs for sewing. Some of the drawers didn't even close any more because they were overflowing with ribbons and miscellaneous haberdashery gubbins... but now they're neat and tidy and there's a place for everything! Hurrah!


This neatness has mostly been achieved by clearing out lots of the random stuff I'm hoarding for mystery Blue-Peter-style craft projects in the future (now safely tucked away under the bed in the spare room), leaving room for the day-to-day supplies I need regular access to like buttons and beads and tape measures and sewing thread (sorted by colour, of course).

Yes I have two of said chests and just like yours they are overflowing with "vital" stuff. Must be a crafter thing

Well done! I'm in the midst of a workroom tidy up, and plotting an Ikea trip any day now. My storage has become a bit of a family joke...

Oh I am very impressed with your colour-coordinatedness! Please send some of your organisation skills my way!

I have some of those storage cabinets from Ikea, and yes, I can hardly shut the drawers on mine either. I need to do a clear out!
