I like sewing. I don't do large projects nor do I make clothes. But, I do know how to sew a straight line. I have been known to sew accent pillows and curtains, upholster seat cushions, and have repair pants and sewed buttons from time to time. So, I used my supplies at least a few times a year.
Over the years, my sewing bins have gotten cluttered. Here is a "before" picture of my organizing sewing supplies. Check it out. What a mess!
As you can see, it is quite messy. Though I was able to find everything at one time so it worked for a while. The main problem was if it fell over it would make such a mess. So, I looked around my misc. organizing supply bins and found these organizing supplies I had and were not using.
Then, I decided to sort it into a fixed sorter bin with a lid to keep it from falling out. Here is the final picture below. I used the scissors and other cutters in its own container to keep protected.
Here are the individual images of the fixed sorter bins with lids:
As you can see, I divided up all the small things into categories and then put them in their own section.
I went and stored out the threads and put them into their own section. It looks like I have every color I would need. I even threw away a few that were duplicates. I love the look and can get what I want easily.
On Amazon.com(affiliate), I found a bunch of portable organizing sewing supplies organizers. See the images below. They can store the fabrics as well if needed.
I am so happy that I had a chance to do this. It only took about 30 minutes to sort. That wasn't bad for a small organizing project. What type of supplies do you have for your crafts that you didn't organize yet? Please leave a comment below.
