On this tour we are sharing nontraditional tools we use while sewing. I wracked my brain trying to think of something I've used in my studio that I haven't seen anywhere else and this is what I came up with. If you scroll down you'll see I just completed a mandala style log cabin, trying to use up scraps. In order to keep my scraps sorted out by color I grabbed some of these hooks from the kitchen and hung the grocery bags full of strips on my fabric shelves. They sat right next to my position at the sewing machine so I could just reach over and grab the appropriate color while I was sewing. My studio is SO SMALL I really don't have room to pile the scraps on my sewing table. So this worked out great!
You may recognize those fabric shelves from Ikea, I love them (those are my hand dyed fabrics in the drawers, hence all the solids). Well the coffee cup hooks are also from Ikea!
