Hallo, it’s Hazel all the way from Sunny South Africa here to share with you how to store your thread. I’ve got a scientific degree and therefore arrange everything according to the colors of the rainbow. If you do that with thread it can become quite a work of art BUT today we will keep to storage solutions.
Just a quick warning – my friend Pinterest could not supply me with enough ideas so I befriended Flickr. The down side is that most of the ideas only have pictures attached and no links to blogs. Still, I think you will enjoy the tour!
Let’s start with the plastics – clean, neat and see through!
Hop over to Stitched by Me to read the whole post. When she moved house, she had to cut her “behind the door storage unit” in half just to move again and to put it back together again!! You can find a picture here.
These are from Target and from the same Flickr member came this brilliant idea: keep your matching spools and thread together by using pipe cleaners. See it here.
Plastic CD storage bags:
Mount it on the wall:
Need a whole cupboard?? This one was custom made for China Marks. Read all about it here.
What about some wood?
And for my vintage enthusiasts: a Printers tray:
That’s it, some storage ideas for your thread. If you want to make your own, here is a tutorial and if you want to buy, I came upon this one which looks like fun. In the end it doesn’t matter what you use – the idea is to arrange your stash so that you can easily get hold of what you need.
If you want to see how I arrange mine, you can hop over to my blog and see for yourself. I’m a no dust, no fuss kind of girl so I used containers from the local hardware store. Just click here.
I loved talking to you today. Thanks for visiting Craft Storage Ideas and please check back as my fellow contributors and I have lots and lots and lots more to share. Have a lovely day!
