On that day I shared a tutorial that helped me organize a little problem of mine but it’s actually a perfect project for me to share on thrifted Thursdays. Perfect because it helps me organize all the vintage patterns that I buy at thrift stores! (And believe me, I buy a lot of them.)
Here’s what I made:
*5 Quart storage bins (I bought mine at the Dollar Store but they also sell them at Wal-Mart)
*An old paint brush
*Some old patterns that you are willing to part with
(However, if you are really particular about your patterns you could skip the bow and make a cute label for the front detailing the sizes or styles of patterns in each bin. Obviously I didn’t do that with mine…as per most of my projects I chose fun over practicality…)
I love my little army of pattern boxes. They are exactly what I needed–I can easily flip through the contents of each bin, the patterns are organized by size and style, and of course they look good on my shelf. It was just what I needed. And with the bins costing only $1 each I can collect and organize as many thrifted patterns as my heart desires.
