DIY Tutorial - Sewing Thread Organizer

Thursday, August 4, 2016

restored my Singer 15-31 machine and brainstormed a way to keep my new thread spools easy to access, tangle free and look nice too.

This is what I came up with.  A box that sits on the ground with dowel pegs and a smaller shelf for smaller items as well as a place to put new spools that I add to my collection.
