Plastic CD-Rom containers with the spindle are wonderful for keeping your knitting projects clean, untangled, and safe from kitty paws! Many of the spindles screw right off the lid, leaving a nice smooth hole for your yarn to come through. It's easy to store your small project (such as a sock) right in the container when you are setting your project aside.

This tip helps you get craft projects out of the way while you are not working on them. Put all the patterns and other supplies for a craft project in a plastic grocery bag with handles. Then slip each handle of the grocery bag over a clothes hanger and hang it a closet. You can cross the handles so the bag won't slip off the hanger. If the handles still have a tendency to slip, secure them with clothespins.

I do a lot of cross-stitching and to organize projects in progress I put threads in snack-size plastic bags. Then I use an old eyeglass case to hold scissors and needles. I use a large ziplock bag for the hoop, thread, and material. I punch holes at the top of the bag (under the zipper) and place these in a binder. Each large binder holds 2-3 projects.


These projects have deadlines, so I use a label and have the due date and who it's designated for as a gift. The labels pull off easily. Also when I set a price for an item for sale, I write the date started and keep track of the time on paper and place it in the binder. That way, when the project is through, I place this paper in a smaller binder so I know what to charge and also when to start a project to get it done on time for gift giving. I do this for all crafts. I then place the binder in a basket, next to where I do crafts.
