Totally Tipster Sewing Garden

I was sewing last night and looked to my right and just had to smile at my happy view. Here is what I saw.:

I don’t know why, but my scissors looked like happy flowers tucked inside leaves of pens and seam rippers in a garden of thread. Isn’t that silly? But I really am grateful for these beautiful sewing notions.❤️

Do you have a nice way to organize a few of your most used notions? If not, you may want to try to make a Totally Tipster flower garden of your own. A pretty office organizer caddy is all you need. I got mine on sale at Michaels several years ago.

I fill my sewing flower box with scissors, seam rippers, marking pencils, sewing machine screw drivers, lint brushes, nail files, a seam turner, my glasses and more. It really is a happy box filled with things I love:)

I also like to keep plenty of pre-wound bobbins handy as I sew. I wind several white and black bobbins to keep a smile on my face when that unexpected end of bobbin invisible sewing seam happens. We”ve all been there, right?

Having my bobbins at my side and ready to go, really makes life easier when my sewing bobbin runs out. I really like my Dritz bobbin box. It holds 25 bobbins and sits on an angle inside of its own lid.

It really is a nice way to keep that black and white thread handy:). As far as my spools of thread on the wall go, I have written a whole Totally Tipster post about how to organize thread that you can read about here.

I hope you have a sewing bouquet in your sewing room. It is SWEET!

Until next time:)

Totally Tip-ster! – On the Go Fabric Organizer

Happy Tuesday to you!  Like many of you, I like to work on hand work at night while relaxing and watching a show.  I bet you do too, right?

But sometimes those little pieces can be a bit tricky to transport and keep organized from my work station to my evening chair or to the car for traveling.  Well, I have a Totally Tipster Tuesday tip for you today:)

I am guessing that you have an old coupon organizer laying around your house.  I did.  But if you don’t, these handy organizers are just a dollar or two at your local Walmart or corner pharmacy.A coupon organizer is the perfect size for those small appliqué or paper pieces. Plus, it fits in your purse for easy take along sewing. SWEET!It even comes with handy dividers to keep sections separated so you won’t have to dig around to find the pieces for each flower or leaf etc.  For very small paper pieces, I  recommend putting them in a small envelope and then in the divider so the don’t migrate under the dividers:)When each piece is turned, sewed, or pieced they fit happily back in their divided space.  They can easily be carried back to my normal working area without falling to the floor or getting mixed together.How easy is that?  They look so pretty all separated and organized by color and style.  It is so Totally Tip-ster!!  

I hope this helps and inspires some of you.  If you have any fun ways to transport your projects, I would love to hear about them:)  

Have a super SWEET day!
