A few months back someone gave me a craft caddy. Back then I didn't embroider like I do now, so I decided to use it for buttons instead of floss. (However, this week I went and bought a caddy for my embroidery floss because the stuffing in a jar thing isn't working anymore. I knew that was a quick solution and not a long-term thing...)
So if you will...my pretty little caddy of buttons...
I love having my buttons organized like this. When I open up the caddy, I just love looking at the colors together. What great inspiration! The large aqua ones are among one of my favorites.
Then the aqua and red polka dot buttons are a brand new aquisition. I have been eyeing these on Etsy for months and finally gave in and bought them. Again, no specific purpose in mind...
They came from England, and it was worth the extra wait for them to go through customs. (FYI: International shipping into the US is taking longer than usual.)
Such a nice way to organize those buttons...
When I am all done, I just place the caddy towards the back of my sewing table...out of the reach of little hands. :) I currently don't have any shelving for my sewing stuff so my sewing table is currently home to most things like this. The empty caddy on the bottom is for my floss. I just have to wind all the floss on the bobbins...movie night anyone?
So there you go! Any other tips for organizing out there?
