Spruce up your creative space for 2016!
Yes, we know the joy of a tumbling mountain of yarn, the delight in a pile of colourful fabrics and papers plus the unparallelled pleasure in teaming towers of mismatched ribbon and tape reels, but we’re also well aware of the chaos we leave in our wake after a good making session. We share your pain of not being able to ﬁnd those all important scissors, our trusted favourite pen (we all have one) and those lovely little fabric scraps we were storing away for that perfect project. So come on, make 2016 the year you get organised and create a great looking, neat and tidy work area. Get inspired with some fun ideas below:
Stitch handy fabric tubs
These tubs are the perfect easy make to store in style. Why not try bundling all your items for a project together and keeping them in each tub? Check out Issue 39 of Homemaker for the how-to.
Re-purpose a cake stand
We love this idea for using a cake stand as a pretty storage solution. Use old jam jars to streamline and stack!
Create a trims station
With a simple storage trolley you can really get on top of your craft organisation. We love this hack for sorting unruly ribbons.
Transform tins into cute containers
This make is as simple as they come, choose your favourite paper, an old tin and get wrapping! If the paper starts to look a bit tired or you fancy a change then just un-wrap and refresh.
