Tip of the Morning Tuesday~DIY Crafter's Tool Caddy

Welcome to another Tip of the Morning Tuesday. I wanted something to keep some of my sewing, quilting and knitting tools in while watching dvds and doing some handwork. Depending on what I was working on at the time, I thought using a dip/chip/veggie snack tray would be just perfect for holding my tools and such. I didn't have one so I stopped by a dollar store to take a peek and see what they had. I found this one and it was perfect for my needs. One of the pincushions I had made a while back fit just right in the center too, so I didn't need to make a new one.
Here's the chip/dip/veggie snack tray I bought at a dollar store.
My pincushion fit perfectly in the center and a few sewing and knitting tools fit in the sections.
This would also be great to hold beads, stamps and stamp pads, paints, or whatever your hobby is that requires you to have several items on hand while you work. It even looks like a gigantic paint palette, lol! I keep this on a TV tray by the sofa.
Pin It Now!

  1. Great Idea. Sometimes its hard to keep track of tools and supplies while you are working on a piece and when you have to set it aside for a bit.

  4. Love this idea Daryl. It's not often I sew in front of the tv because I fall asleep before I can stitch anything but this would be excellent if I could keep my eyes open long enough.
