Dollar Store Sewing Hacks Mini Stuffed Animal Pin Cushions
Aside from fabric and a sewing machine, you’re going to need accessories, too. The expenses can add up fast so I’m sharing a new series with you called Dollar Store Sewing Hacks.
Besides fabric, scissors, pins, bobbins, thread, and sewing machines, you’re going to need a pin cushion or two. You can find mini stuffed animals at the dollar store and use them for pin cushions and they make cute decorations for your sewing room.
Dollar Store Sewing Hacks
Purchase a roll of wrapping paper and roll your fabric on the roll to make your own bolt of fabric and to prevent your fabric from wrinkles.
Put grip contact paper underneath your sewing machine foot pedal.
Purchase hair rollers and slip them onto a lint roller to easily pick up lose threads.
Use a mini roll of yarn to hold our scissors.
Buy rings to hold your bobbins, then hang them on a peg board.
Buy magnets to make a magnetic pin holder.
Purchase ponytail holders and wrap around your bobbins to prevent them from unwinding.
Purchase small and large plates and candle holders to make a 2-tier sewing organizer.
Clean the lint from the bobbin area with makeup brushes. Preferably large ones.
Use binding clips found in the office supply section to clip your binding in place and paper clips to keep your pattern on your fabric when cutting it out.
How To Organize A Craft Room
Here’s a sneak peak at my post on how to organize your craft room. Click here to read the full post.
- The first thing you need to do is take a full inventory of all your supplies. In order to completely organize your supplies, you need to know exactly what you have.
- Consider how often you use them and how much storage space you will need.
TIP: If you have a lot of supplies you do not use…get rid of them. You don’t have to throw them away, you can give them away on Free Recycled Stuff, a church, Goodwill, schools, daycares, or a local organization. The main goal here is to have your craft room stocked with supplies you use. You don’t want to fill it with supplies you don’t use, this just adds more clutter to your room. Read more.
