15 Organizing Ideas for your Sewing Space



I LOVE organizing things but sometimes I organize "so well" I can't find things later. These 15 ideas will help you stay get it together and HOPEFULLY not forget. :D 
Away we go!



1. Try this fabric stash organization with plans and instructions via Sew at home Mummy. I already asked Husband to do this for me. LOL



2. This tutorial shows you how to make a framed peg board - perfect to hold sewing tools! 



3. This blog post by One Crazy House shows you 15 ways to make an ironing station, for all spaces small to big.



4. Easy peasy thread rack DIY by Creative Little Daisy.



5. The Girl Inspired keeps her fabric like this, wrapped around these cardboard type cards available here.


6. Sorry no link for this one, but the photo is self explanatory! Hook those acrylic rulers and keep them in order.




7. Fit these little boxes in drawers to keep tiny things organized, like safety pins, buttons, measuring tapes, clips, etc...



8. This post by Buttons Galore has a few different ideas for storing buttons. I personally love buttons being sorted by color! It's like looking at candy.


9. The organizer caddy in a drawer idea works. They can be found at the Container Store here.


10. This post by Sew Fearless describes a method for storing sewing patterns.



11. I enjoy reading The Krazy Coupon Lady's blog for her collection of out-of-the-box ideas. Organize your ribbon spools once and for all!


12. No link but self explanatory again. Thanks Pinterest!


13. Pin Sew Press has this great idea using old office file thingys for acrylic rulers. Genius!


14. Zipper storage by A Time for Everything. She explains how she made this, think what you might convert to do your version. 


15. Re-purpose older furniture like Maple and Magnolia. A quick coat of paint and you have a beautiful piece to showcase your favorite things. No tutorial but you get the idea!

Rainbow Pillow tutorial


This colorful and cheery make is a video tutorial on my IGTV here.   

It's so easy, simply sew strips together to make a front pillow, add stitches for decoration if you want to. Then make 2 back envelope pieces, sew together front & back, and HORRAY!

This tutorial is another option for a colorful and satisfying make, with illustrations showing how to do the envelope portion.

*I will update this post with written instructions soon. :)
 IGTV isn't for everyone.


Easily adaptable to different colors, widths of fabric strips, and stitching -- make it your own! Ruby made this one mostly, I only did the Sashiko stitches.


YAY for COLOR!
