Ta-da! Presenting to you my crumpled mess of cottons:
Add in some mini wooden spools:
Plus a whole heap of winding:
...and you have the best embroidery cotton storage idea in the world!
How cute are they??!!! Love!
Here are some itty bitty details for you:
- I bought the spools from HERE. $23-00 for a box of 20
- They are tiny (and cute) so they store really well. I popped mine in a mini Ikea drawer, but I think they'd be super sweet in a little basket.
- The ends of the embroidery cotton just seem to hold around the spool - I just wound until I was out of cotton and the thread stuck to the other thread. Does that make sense? Probably not!
- One spool holds one full shank of DMC/Cosmo/etc.. emrbroidery cotton.
