Are your sewing supplies all jumbled up in drawers? This clever hack is easy, inexpensive and a great way to give everything it’s own place. Plus, you’ll be able to use every bit of space, making this the ultimate in organization.
Karen Brown from Just Get It Done Quilts demonstrates how to create drawer dividers and trays from inexpensive foam core. If your drawers are deep you can even set trays on top of dividers to use every inch of space.
The trays will work nicely on shelves, too, giving you lots of options for organizing your space. Make a tray for spools of thread, another for the pieces needed for a project, and so on.
Perhaps the best feature of this hack is that you can customize every space to fit exactly what you want to store there. All it takes is foam core from the dollar store and a glue gun. And, once everything is organized it will be much easier to keep things neat and easy to find.
Watch as Karen demonstrates how to make dividers and trays in the following video. She also discusses at the end of the video how best to cut the foam core. If using a rotary cutter, use an old blade or one that can be dedicated to this project.
