Ever since Mary Jo posted about her very cool fishing lure/needle organizer I have been thinking about how to organize my needles. Here is how I usually store my needles.
Yes all thrown together in a tote. Double points in one baggie and circulars in another baggie. plus my pompom makers and other stuff. When I needed a needle I would go searching. It could get frustrating not knowing what was what and where. Of course my first instinct when seeing Mary Jo's worm binder was I need one of those too. I even got to check out Mary Jo's binder. It's like a little suitcase. Space is a premium in the house so I felt that I didn't have a space to store the suitcase. My solution was a file folder holder from the office supply store. I found a cute one too. Bonus!
The supplies: label maker (love it!), CD size baggies, needle sizer, and tape measure.
I labeled the baggies with the needle size and the length of the needles.
After putting the labels on the file folder I filed the needles in their new home.
There you have it. Needle organization. I love it!
