My Thread Storage Solution
And finally, as I promised earlier, here’s a shot of how I store my sewing threads. In my post 6 super cheap sewing organization ideas I showed you I used a small plastic box to store ALL my supplies. Well, my sewing supplies quickly grew out of it and I ended up using SEVERAL small plastic bags to store the supplies which was quite annoying as it was taking a lot of space and looked untidy.
That’s when I started to look for a solution to keep all my sewing supplies organized in one place. This wooden caddy seemed like a perfect solution. I can store literally ALL my supplies excluding the bag hardware and zippers though. But, it’s ideal for my threads, bobbins and scissors as you can see below. It’s PERFECT for my small sewing space!
Here’s a link to almost the same caddy if you would like to purchase one for yourself.
Do note that you would have to assemble it yourself once you receive it. I didn’t want to use my brains for it so I just took my friend’s help.
If you don’t want to spend gazillion hours figuring out how to put the caddy together or if you don’t have anyone to do it for you, here are some similar caddies that you can purchase from Amazon that would not require any assembly.
Or if you prefer something in acrylic…
That’s the end of the LONG post where I shared several superb thread storage ideas. Some of these sewing thread holders can be bought at store and some can be easily made at home. I also shared how I store my threads at the end of the post.
If you’re wondering what was inside the butter cookie box that shattered my 5 year old heart. The answer is; IT WAS FULL OF THREADS!
Now, every time I go to someone’s place I’m afraid to look in the cookie and candy boxes, lest there be threads or something else inside. Like I said, some people like to use everyday objects to just serve the purpose and that’s where things start getting confusing.
