I wanted to share how I store and organize my crocheting supplies. I just began crocheting again after over 25 years and found myself in need of storage and organization. As I have a dog and a cat I wanted to make sure that I could keep my yarn clean and fur free, so I have to become creative. I do love to organize on a budget so I had to come up with a few good ideas. Along with the Sterilite containers I also found these items that could work.
These were Stackable storage containers that I found in several sizes but bought these two. I had my husband drill a hole in the center for the yarn to pull through. They work great. I finally received my ball winder and made the yarn cakes with the center pull and they work great in these. They were purchased at a local store called Marcs for $.99 and $1.49.
This is a bottle bag that I found at Family Dollar for only $7.00. I use this for my on the go bag. It is the perfect size.
This is a larger bag that I found at Tuesday Morning for $9.99. It is a Singer sewing and craft bag. I use this for my Work in Progress (WIP) items. Right now I am working on a sweater. It is made in 5 pieces so I store the pieces here and use the small bags to take a pieces that I am working on in.
