Organizing: Embroidery Floss

My embroidery floss was a hot mess. Fact.

I've known I needed to find a better solution for some time and yesterday while buying things I didn't need at the great store, Windsor Button, I saw a bag of "doll pins" (actually, old style clothes pins) and thought, BINGO. This would be my solution for embroidery floss.

So, one hoppin' Friday night I got to work. Luckily, I'm at the begining of my floss consumption and it didn't take to long to get them all wound up.

I kind of love how they look, actually. I think they'd be great on display in a large glass container. I also used some of them to wind up my equally messy collection of seam tape (how I love you and how I cannot deny you at 25¢ a yard).


  1. Excuse me, why did my comment delete? I wanted to express that messy embroidery floss is a really relatable situation.

  2. these embroidery threads look so beautiful nicely wrapped! they look a bit different then the ones Im used to but still quite pretty :)

    I'd love it if you'd check out my blog :)

  3. Oh this is wonderful and beautiful to look at too!!!
