Here’s a little craft room tip I thought I’d share. My husband had bought about 5 of these
magnetic strips from Ikea a long time ago. He was planning on using them in the garage (they’re really intended for storing chef’s knives). I snagged one for my sewing room.
Not sure about anyone else with kids, but needles and scissors and lots of small doodads don’t really mix with well with my girls. I was always trying to find a good place to hide them and keep them secure, but also keep them close at hand. So here’s what I came up with! They’re super cheap at Ikea, so if you have one near you swing by and pick one up in the kitchen department. I put my bobbins, scissors, some needles, safety pins and even my zipper foot all nicely stored up and out of the way, yipee!
Yep, Emily turned 1 in August. We had her party at a local park. My brother was able to get some really great shots with his dSLR (I’m so jealous!). Anyway. I embellished her shirt with a cupcake and had sewn her a Market Skirt from made, check out the tutorial here. I love it!
Aren’t these precious? I just love them and want to keep them all to myself. It can hold credit cards, some cash or change, some lip balm. All you need for a quick run to the store or to slip into your diaper bag. I love the handy outer pocket, perfect for my debit card! If anyone is interested I think I’ll be trying my first tutorial featuring these babies!
