Yes, I am back to embroidery land after a lengthy hiatus. I still want to do artwork but I am under the gun to get this piece finished in time to enter the County Fair this year.

I also wanted to share this find! I was in desperate need of self-containing storage for my embroidery spools. I prefer using rolls instead of hanks now. It is much more convenient for me. I found a train case for cosmetics at Walmart and it definitely did the trick! This case holds all my embroidery floss balls, needles, pin cushion, etc. There is also room for growth (more balls) in the future. The price point for this case is $25 which is totally decent.

I hope your summer is going well!

Storage Solutions

March 31st, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

I absolutely love organization units and storage units. If you’ve been following this post, you’ve seen my storage unit for my embroidery floss. I’ve recently found a storage solution for my seed beads. Last weekend, I went to the closing sale of Brantford’s Fabricland. I scooped up $116 worth of seed beads for $26. Yes, I’m still squealing over the massive 75% sale. But I digress, I intend to integrate these seed beads in my sewn works. Rococo Cinderella will be the first to integrate bead embroidery.

This is a storage unit I purchased from Etsy. I have another coming in the mail. It’s pretty small and perfect for travelling measuring around 4″ x 4″. When it came in, I noticed the jar lids came off easily. This is a big no-no for seed beads. I used sticky tac from the dollar store and smeared it across the lid lines and it really did the trick. It holds enough beads for projects and I just have to refill when it runs low.

Now if only I can pick up embroidery scissors with a cover that doesn’t cost over $20.
