Neat and tidy

I live in a two bedroomed bungalow.  There is enough space, but it is not vast.  Yet somehow I can never find what I am looking for, especially when it comes to craft projects – I have too much stuff crammed into too many different places!

In an attempt to regain some control over my elusive knitting needles, I dusted off my sewing machine and, after much thinking about which bits needed to be sewn together in which order, came up with this:

Ignore the fact that the bottom ribbon ended up a bit lower down than I intended!  It opens out to look like this:

A place for everything, and everything in its place:

  1. Nice! I need to do one of these for my needles here. I have them spread out in bags of ‘projects’. But as I do not have a sewing machine here I will have to do it by hand and sewing needles are not the same here in Luxor as they are in the UK! They are thick and short and not conducive to good hand-sewing!!! I will have to try and find some thinner, longer ones!!! Fabric too is not as varied here.But I will come up with something. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Glad you like it! You would have laughed if you could have seen me trying to work out which pockets needed to be sewn in which order, I kept picking pieces up and putting pins in, then walking away and coming back to it to think about it again…
