But thanks to these sewing room organization hacks, my life just got a lot easier! Take notes, sewers, and get your life ready to be changed!

7. Using Bendy Straws to Keep Your Bobbins Organized
I hate it when I can’t find the bobbin I have to use for a project. But with this nifty hack, I can keep my bobbins together and within reach. Glue your bendy straws on a flat surface, keeping the bendy part upright and on the top so your bobbins won’t topple over. You might want to use skinny straws so your bobbins can fit.
8. Binder Clips
Keep your elastics from tangling with one another. Use these inexpensive binder clips—yes, the one from your favorite school supply store!—to keep them in tidy loops.
9. Use Clothespins to Keep Your Embroidery Floss From Tangling
There’s nothing more time-consuming than untangling threads and embroidery floss together. Prevent this frustrating event from happening by looping your embroidery floss—or yarns, even—on wooden clothespins!
10. Use Shoeboxes as Ribbon Dispenser
Transform old shoeboxes into an organized ribbon dispenser. Using eyelets as holes and cardboards as divisions between ribbons, you can now keep your ribbons organized.
