It’s Day 2 of Organization Week here on Seams and Scissors, and instead of bringing you just one tip like we usually do on Tuesdays, we’re bringing you a whole bunch! I’ve gathered up our best organization tips from cleaning to clutter-busting, so you can check them out below and whip your sewing stuff into shape. Once you learn some of our best tricks, you can work up one of the free sewing patterns for organizational supplies that I’ve included!
Fabric Organization Tips
Sometimes the only thing holding you back is that you have more fabric than you know what to do with! Here are our best tips for how to store your fabric to make the most out of your space.
Make Your Own Organizers
Once your fabric is out of the way, it’s time to find space for all the other sewing supplies you might have lying around. These easy sewing tutorials will show you how to make organizers for everything from scissors to spools.
