Is it just me or is space always at a premium in your sewing/crafting area? It doesn’t matter if you have a temporary space you set up in your dining room or a dedicated room, stuff just seems to multiply and conquer any area.
In order to try and maintain order in the face of chaos I’ve come up with a couple tips. One is using a prescription bottle to hold my seam ripper and embroidery scissors. These two little tools are the two most reached for items while sewing (although I’m slowly using the seam ripper less and less).
All I did was take an old prescription bottle and decorate it with a little Japanese tape to dress it up a bit.
Then I added a bit of double sided poster tape. The poster tape is thick and a bit foamy which is neccessary to attach the curved prescription bottle to the curved sewing machine.
Add viola- instant handy holder!
I keep all of my sewing feet and extra needles in this case that came with my sewing machine and although the spaces for the feet are labeled I can’t always remember which is which.
So I created a cheat sheet and taped it to the inside of the plastic case.
The case and instruction manual are usually tucked under the extension table of my sewing machine for easy access.
Do you have any cool space saving tips to share?
