Friday Favourites-Tool Organisers

Here at Handmaker's Factory we always struggle to keep our crafting essentials neat and tidy and love it when we come across great ways to get organised. Here are a few of our favourites!


Sooz has a cheap and easy system for organising paper patterns using a shoe box, envelopes and scrap card. 

Needle boxes 

Sarai shows us a great inexpensive way to organise sewing needles. This is great if you sew different fabrics and need a variety of needles to match.

 wall organiser

 Why not utilise that empty wall space above your desk and make a wall organiser?! A great way to store all those smaller tools such as knitting needles, scissors, paintbrushes and pens. Check out Design Sponge for a tutorial on how to make the organiser above.

CRAPTASTIC thread holder

Tangles thread bobbins is something we all struggle with right? A piece of wood, a hammer and some long nails can change all that! Check out Craptastic for a tutorial on how to make your own.

Right! Who else is organising their sewing room this weekend?!
