Hey there, makers!
I hope everything is going well! It’s no surprise that January is a hectic month. It’s that time of the year where you’re trying to set the right goals for the year and get as much done is possible. Sometimes it can even be overwhelming! But remember to take things one step at a time. One of the best ways of avoiding stress during the new year is by keeping your home organized.
It may sound silly, but the less clutter you have around you the more your ideas will flow. Hence, you can spend less time cleaning and doing more sewing! Since a little sewing never hurt anyone, I’ve prepared a list of 6 projects you can make to organize your home. Click the name of each project to find the tutorial. Let’s begin!
We all know that mail is one of those things that accumulates like crazy! Before you know it, you have a stack of envelopes on your counter. Why not keep everything organized with a cool mail organizer? We made ours with the Take Shape Capsule collection for a modern look.
I don’t know about you, but I always leave my jewelry and trinkets laying around everywhere! If you suffer from this habit, these cute little fabric boxes are waiting for you to make them. Hide all of your nicknacks, earrings, and even small sewing notions in these bins to keep any table top clear of clutter. We chose the Floralia Fusion collection for this cute project.
If you’re a wine aficionado, this bottle holder is the ideal project for you to make in 2018. Give those fancy wines the spotlight in your kitchen or dining room by making this stylish project made with Indie Folk fabrics by Pat Bravo.
Let’s be honest, most laundry baskets are too small and they’re not that pretty. Solve all of your “overflowing laundry” problems by make this spacious laundry basket with your favorite fabrics. For this one we chose Wonderful Things by Bonnie Christine.
If you’re looking to add more storage to your work space or need a cute way of decorating, these adorable wall organizers made with Blush fabrics by Dana Willard are great. Make them in all sizes and store all of your stationary in them.
Last but not least, for those of you that aren’t sure where else to keep your endless fabric stash these storage bags NEED to be in your sewing room. Besides the fact that you can make them in all sizes and color, they look way better than the usual plastic bins. We had fun mixing and matching the prints from Indie Folk by Pat Bravo when we made these.
I hope you like all of these functional projects that you can make to keep your home organized. Let me know in the comment which project you like the most and what are some of your 2018 New Year’s resolutions.
Till next time!
