My mother in law went to a bag party a few months ago and kept telling me about this cute little note card organizer that she saw there. She kept saying how she wished she had bought it to show me the design of it. So going by her explanation and the design of my own sewing bag, her little note card organizer was born. I have to say I love the way it turned out and of course now my little creative mind has come up with even more baskets for storing all of our goodies!
One side of the basket has slots for storing pencils, pens or markers.
While two sides of the organizer have pockets for storing note cards, envelopes or note pads.
Inside of the basket stores more note cards, plus I filled it with tape, white-out, scissors and other little goodies that she may use.
The organizer was pretty quick and easy to make. In case you are wondering, I will be sharing a tutorial for this cute little organizer for one of my upcoming fat quarter fridays. The basket is actually small enough to use up a few of our fat quarters. Just one more reason to love this little organizer. Of course the size of the basket can be adapted for storing larger items as well. I used terry cloth as my stabilizer. I was hoping to try a thin foam instead, but I didn’t get to the fabric store in time. I like the way the terry cloth gave the basket its shape and it is even firm enough to stand on its own. I think it worked great as a stabilizer but it was a little hard to work with at times because of its thickness in some spots. So I guess you could say I have a few kinks to works out still.
Just think of all the different baskets that can be made! I have already tweaked my design a bit, and have come up with a few other baskets that can be made for storing all our crafting goodies. Stay tuned!
