With all the new Ric Rac, Trim & Ribbon I bought from "MARDINS" great prices I had to come up with a storage solution. I wanted to be able to keep them handy and close to my sewing table. So I looked all around the house and found my old stash of canning jars and jars I saved over the years for just in case. I also used some vases.
This mishmash of jars and vases works just perfectly for each of the different styles of Ric Rac, trim and ribbon.
This is my sewing side of my studio. I like to have everything handy and reachable from my table.
I took a 8 x 8 picture frame and backed it with a pretty piece of cardstock. I then used my Cricut cutter and cut out the quote and applied it to the top of the frame. I bought a black dry eraser pen and TADA I now have a dry eraser frame.
I place my Ric Rac in vases and any fat quarter bundles in baskets. The boxes are full of "This & That."
All my quilting rulers are placed in a bill organizer I bought for $1.00. It works perfectly.
My Fat quarter single pieces are nice and tidy in this cute little basket at the top left.
I have my most often used patterns stored in magazine holders and I use a basket for projects in progress.
The basket in the bottom left corner holds some projects I am working on that need to be finished within a two-week time period.
The bottom right hand are all my patterns I print from the internet, each saved in a gallon storage bag. Under that are all my magazines and instruction booklets.
The top left is my rolled fabric pieces; the little vase is full of ribbon flowers already made.
The top right mason jars are just the perfect size for any Ric Rac I have on hand.
In the lower left are some of my threads. They are the colors I use most frequently. The little basket is full of bobbins.
The bottom right is some more material I have on hand.
I have a beautiful view of the lake looking out the two front windows.
This little corner closet actually does hold a lot. I have all my batting and my scraps of material stored in there. My scraps are saved by color in Ziploc bags. My scrap-booking scraps are also saved the same way on the bottom shelves. I have additional patterns and all my notions stored in little drawers and storage units.
The other side of my studio is my scrap-booking section
Not only do I love to sew but I also love anything paper crafting. Soooooo of course I have a side for scrap-booking.
The table was made from an old counter top my hubby had.
The card holder is a very old picture "Home Interior" picture I had that I took and convetered it into this great card display.
I store a lot of my supplies in jars and small and large vases
Hubby made me the cup holder for my many colored pencils and gel pens. I used just plain white plastic cups.
My nestables hang ready to be used on my little dry eraser board.
I took an old wood spice rack and painted it black. This holds all my scrapbook embellishments like my brads and eyelets along with my hodge podge collections.
