26+ Ideas to Keep Your Space Neat and Tidy!
We love when we find inexpensive solutions for sewing room organization. What’s even more fun is discovering ideas for repurposing items we wouldn’t normally think of for keeping tools and supplies neat.
An article by Karen from Sew Many Ways, found on Pickup Some Creativity, has some great ideas for using found and inexpensive items to keep your sewing space tidy.
A few of our favorite ideas are shown below.
- Hot glue a flower to a golfing tee and use it to keep a bobbin and spool of thread together. You’ll find a nice selection of tees here.
- Use an eye bolt from the hardware store to keep track of thread when hand sewing.
- A plastic vial from the florist is perfect for pins and needles. Vials can be found here.
- Mini hair bands keep bobbins from unwinding. You’ll find them here.
- Repurpose a mug tree for scissors and rotary cutters. Mug trees can be found here.
- Attach two curtain hooks and a curtain rod to the side of a cutting table for freezer paper, interfacing and fusible web.
- A wooden drying rack is perfect for keeping strips in order for sewing. Drying racks can be found here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
