Fill straw dispensers with towers of ribbon spools and watch them rise to the occasion. Not only are unruly ribbons kept in check, but they’re also visible. To get the spools inside, remove the top of a dispenser insert and slide ribbons onto the rod.
Create a sewing corner anywhere in your house with a work surface and storage. For a colorful inspiration board, glue a fabric remnant to a magnetic chalkboard. Slide a woven basket under a desk to hold fabric scraps, and place a small wire shelving unit in the corner to stash larger pieces.
Whether you cut specific sizes from every fabric or cut yardages with a particular quilt project in mind, sorting by dimension is a storage option. Use clear-plastic storage boxes to hold fabrics of the same size and label the boxes for true efficiency.
Pretty fabric panels hide this space’s hardest worker: a closet lined with assemble-yourself storage components. These stackable boxes and drawers organize everything from fabric to notions. Pegboard puts even the smallest wall space to work stowing tools and essentials so they are orderly yet within reach. Best of all, you can close the panels to conceal the creative clutter.
