My Discovery!

I think we all need a little organization when stitching a project.  Each time I start something new I look for the right floss storage as every project is unique.  

The one I am working on right now is an upcoming reproduction so I'm stitching with silk which I always put in the convenient "Floss-A-Way" bags sold in needlework stores.  Usually I put them on a ring because each bag has a hole in the corner.  I don't remember why I tried it but I slipped one of the bags into the pocket in our "Fresh From the Garden" needlebook and it fit!  They are all in there now and it's keeping me very organized while I stitch.


Back to stitching,
Diane

  7. I use snack size bags from the supermarket....less expensive (and you can punch your own hole if you want).

  8. Great idea!

    I'm a "bag lady" too. For filing my floss, I use the Floss-Away bags but for projects, I put floss in the little 3x4 bags I buy in the jewlery dept. at HL.
