Sewing Thread Organiser

A cute way to personalise your sewing thread storage by CraftyRie.com
I have been slowly trying to organise my sewing space and the one thing that was too big & cumbersome was my plastic thread holder. I really hated it, it didn't even fit the new thread that I'd started to use (this type) so I changed to a basket but that was just a big mess.
So I was delighted to come across a pattern that offered a much prettier way to store my threads, don't you think?!

It was a fun thing to sew, I changed the pattern ever-so-slightly to remove the sections that you could pull your threads through instead I opted for full pouches because I wanted to store the threads for my sewing machine rather than for embroidery (where you only need a bit of thread not the entire spool).

The needle organiser that I made (see it here) fits perfectly into the bottom pocket, so no more hunting for my sewing needles!

Joe, upon seeing all of my thread, was a little jealous, so I gave him some of the colours that I bought, many years ago, that I never used. He's now he's a happy kid!

My next sewing plans for organisation is for this nifty holder. I've had the pattern for a while but honestly, I couldn't figure out what I could store in it for it to be useful.  I've since decided that I'm going to store all my knitting needles, crochet hooks, pompom makers - everything yarnie within it to keep them all together (instead of me misplacing them throughout the house!).

How do you store your threads?  Box, bag, out on display?
