Since moving from Minneapolis back to Chicago, my office/work room/craft room has gotten a serious downsize. I went from having like a 12×12 room to myself to a maybe 3×6 area in the living room behind the couch.
NOT that I’m complaining. I’m happy to have this space! I’ve worked with less and just having a table to put my computer on is an upgrade from the last 9 months. But I’ve had storage issues to deal with! So it’s a good thing I’m so creative. The fabric boxes for the DVDs was certainly a huge hit, and now I’ve got my circular knitting needles taken care of, too!
This one is a little shameful – I found it on etsy and just figured out how to make my own. Is that terrible? I obviously don’t want to take away this super talented woman’s business, so I’m not going to talk in-depth about how I did it.
I found this super clever needle organizer on pinterest, hoping for a tutorial, but finding an etsy shop page. So this design is totally from Buttermilk Cottage, who makes a ton of beautiful things, including a wide variety of knitting needle and crochet hook organizers. I kind of used the information she provided in her post to hack this one together.
I’m obviously not a very talented sewer, but I get the job done, as I’ve said here many times. So here I just got the job done with some fabric I had laying around. And it totally works! I hung it up on the side of a bookcase, and ALL of my knitting needles are organized and not sitting in a pile getting wrapped up around each other and totally unusable.
And I’m pretty happy with it! It took me less than a movie to complete, and while it’s clearly not as beautiful as the cases on Buttermilk Cottage, my cheap Canal Street version of this case is doing it’s job, and making my tiny office come together!Pin It
