Storing floss

What I really like about this storage is that each color can be separated into it's own drawer, the thread is visible through the front for easy selecting, and  the drawer units are stacking or side by side. Oh, and I can't leave out the fact that they are very inexpensive....these were purchased at Target for $7.99 each.

For now, they can be side by side on my sewing table and when I have added more thread  I will be able to  stack the units.

 I also think they look so pretty in these drawers. After all, aren't they for making some really pretty things even prettier?





Didn't Jennie do a fabulous job on our new header for our blog? I think it's really sweet. Here are some flowers for you to enjoy, I am, thank you sweet hubby!  Thank you for stopping by and visiting and we love your comments.

  4. I find myself relishing the colour range each season brings but despite still being in winter your beautiful spring shades are calling out to me.

    Your header is lovely.

  10. Where do you buy your thread? I can't seem to find the size 8 (other than white and black) anywhere local. Do you order it? If so, how do can you tell if you are getting the right color?

  12. Love the storage. I have some of those that I use for other craft things. And one is for my daughter's craft stuff. She likes to craft when I do (she's 3). And Jennie did do a great job on the header--love the pups! She is really talented and very sweet, too.

  15. OH I love the new header--it's fabulous! I wish I knew how to do that type of thing because my blog needs a makeover pretty bad. Some day!!
    Perfect storage! hey, did you catch the Quilt Taffy post about using Presencia Finca Perle Cotton No. 12 in the sewing machine? I can't tell what weight thread you have there, but here's a link to the post in case you're interested:

  16. Love those threads, nice storage. We don't have Target here in Canada (yet) but it's coming soon. For me, Target + Saturday Night Live go hand in hand, that my only experience with the department store.

  17. I like this idea and am thinking of getting something like it (although we don't have Target in the UK so I'll have to try other places). You didn't say how many balls of pearl cotton you can fit in each drawer??
