Craft Organizing: Store Knitting Needles in Hanging File Folders

Organizing craft supplies does not require fancy organizational tools- just a little creativity!

Here is a crafty organizing idea a client of mine came up with: 

  1. Buy a portable file caddy 
  2. Add hanging file folders
  3. Label each file tab with a needle number
  4. Group needle sets in labeled plastic bags or wrap them together with a rubber band
  5. File your needles!

Sets are now easily organized in individual file folders according to categories of size. When you need size 5 needles,you'll know how to quickly find them and return them when you're done. 

If you would prefer to organize your needles by material type as well, you can add a descriptor to your tab. It would look like this: 5 - bamboo. This system can be as flexible or specific as you want.

This craft organizing technique could be used for any number of crafts including sewing patterns, card stock, or scrapbooking paper. What can you use it for today?
