DIY Storage For Your Craft Or Sewing Room

I love to share ideas for keeping a craft room or sewing room nicely organized and this post is focusing on some of the most ingeniuous projects that you can make yourself.

DIY storage projects can be tailored to your exact needs and are often much more effective than pre-made organizational units.

This first example shows exactly what I mean:

Heather from The Creative Homemaker makes this thread and bobbin holder that is perfectly tailored to her needs.  There is a spot for the matching filled bobbin right under the spool of thread.  This wall unit was easily constructed with wood allowing just the right amount of space for the spools to fit.  I just love this design!

I happen to love all things vintage so this next design by Cathe at Just Something I Made really caught my eye.  She made this great pocket organizer using clear adhesive shelf liner and vintage pattern envelopes.  What a fun and great idea for storing all of those small craft items!  Check out how she put this together.

I don’t know about you but I have lots of different scissors and other metal accessories!  This idea by Bonnie from Going Home To Roost is super easy and functional.  See what she used to make this decorative magnetic strip!

This odds and ends rack by The Crafty Nest is another one of my favorites!  The rack was built the perfect size to fit baby food jars…..even though that wasn’t the original intent.  All of those little jars make the perfect organizational units for small supplies.

Here is a great craft desk with lots of storage built right in that you can make yourself.  All of the plans and instructions can be found at Ana White Homemaker.

How do you keep your supplies organized?  Have you done any of your own diy storage projects that have been exactly tailored to your needs or would you like to try a project in the future?

Happy Organizing!
