WIP Storage Containers

In my last post, I mentioned that I had gotten a few storage containers for my WIP pieces. I have now gotten enough of these containers for all of my current WIP's, except for my Little Drummer Boy.....that one will not fit in one of these, since there are over 90 colors of floss...So, that will stay in a tote bag. But, as you can see by the pictures, these fit perfectly in one of the cubby holes in my storage cabinet.
I have also taken a couple extra pictures...one with the contents showing & the other on my lap....the perfect amount of 'heighth' to work with.
I got these at Walmart. They were regularly nearly $4.00 each & I got them for $1.50 each. I love a good bargain!!! My husband even got one for his workshop. He likes to take the stitched piece down with him when he is making a frame, but obviously a wood workshop gets pretty dusty. So, he will put the piece in the container & it will stay clean & he can look at it as needed.

Awesome organizing, Shari! I'm very jealous haha! It's funny, from the angle of the picture, your WIP looks like it actually says "WIP" hehe!

They look great for organising. Your Little Drummer Boy wouldn't be a HAED would it?

Julie said...

You are so organised, great idea.

Always nice to find a good organizational idea. I've started moving furniture....1st step in getting going in my craft room for the big re-do!!!

Cute Boxes!!!! Do you store your floss there too? I couldn't tell if there was room or not.
