Less than a year ago, a friend taught me how to knit. All of the sudden, I have a lot of yarn over-flowing a bin. Time to get serious about organizing this! Here is my best, frugal attempt at yarn storage with a modified version of an idea from crochetme. All you will need is oatmeal containers (or coffee), fabric, and a hot glue gun. The fabric cut for the small standard oatmeal container for me was 14 in. x 7 in.
Any hot glue gun will work…
I simply put three dots of hot glue in a line along the seam of the container and pressed my fabric flat against it. Hold until it dries. Then, fold your fabric tightly around the container and, again, 3 dots of hot glue, place fabric onto glue and hold to dry (only a few seconds). Hello, organization!
This is a picture from a few feet back. It measures that I will be able to fit 8 containers underneath each side of my shelf. The beauty; there is plenty of room underneath that will allow me for more oatmeal storage contains if yarn becomes as much of a “problem” (or collection 😉 for me as fabric has. You can be the judge.
I love it! Wa-la! Frugal, fancy and just super cute all around! Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!
