Ok so this isn’t technically sewing but I thought I might share anyway.
I am lucky enough to have a small dedicated sewing room and I’m a bit of an organising geek but since we rent I can’t really put up permanent shelving or hang things off of the wall so I have to get imaginative. I also like to display my sewing items and keep them within easy reach so I’ve had this little project in mind for a while and thought I would document as I go to see if I can inspire someone else.
I wanted to display my sewing threads in a nice manner and since I already have a pin board up I wanted to piggy back off of it someway…
