While 11th hour, supply shopping for my sons it occurred to me; if ever there’s a time for multi-tasking, it’s during the back-to-school rush. Take advantage of the souped-up aisles of the season, to score bargain solutions for crafty clutter!
Oblong pencil bags are perfect for keeping double-pointed needles in place!
These cute little cases work like a charm, for collecting stitch markers & holders, buttons, t-pins, etc.
Larger, flat pouches work great for keeping track of circular needles or yarn swatches. At under $1, they offer a cost-effective solution bringing order to tool-stash chaos. Buy a bunch, clip ’em into a binder and store your goodies on a bookshelf!
But wait, there’s more! Also look for locker caddies to keep yarn in, post-it notes for pattern reading and rulers for gauge checking. Happy organizing!
Oh, and hey parents, congratulations on another school year! 😉
