Organizing Your Embroidery Supplies: Embroidery Thread
Even the most novice embroiders start to accumulate a mass amount of thread early on in their embroidering journey. And the more you have, the harder it is to sort it properly with the rest of your embroidery supplies. Since you definitely don’t want that thread to get tangled, knotted, and stuck together, we have a few tips today on different, fun ways to organize your embroidery thread!
You can attach multiple paddle pop craft sticks together with a binder clip, then just wrap each stick with a different embroidery thread. Not only will you keep the threads untangled, but you can also organize your different groups of craft sticks by color, what you typically use together, texture, and more! And you can go that extra step and write the name of the color on each stick to keep track when you run low or completely out of that thread. You can get full details on this project on Wild Olive Handmade Crafts & Cuteness.
Recycle all those leftover tic tac containers you have by filling them with your embroidery thread! All you have to do is roll up your thread, pop it in the removable top, and you have an easy way to store your embroidery thread that prevents tangles. After you fill it, just close it and keep the end near the top so you can pull it through the slot where the tic tacs used to come out! You can find a full tutorial on Sewlicious Home Decor.
Another great way to keep thread separated is to use wooden bobbins. What’s the best part about them? You can get them in all kinds of fun shapes and sizes to show off your personality and decorate your embroidery space! You can find the dachshund dog, as well as other shapes of wooden bobbin pins, on Etsy.com. The link under the picture above also link directly to the product page for each bobbin above. For most of the animal bobbins, you wrap the thread around their body and then slide the end of the thread in the animal’s mouth.
