my creative space... {everything in its place}

I would love to say that I'm a naturally organised person.  Mostly I am, but sometimes things can get the better of me and at any moment my need to be organised and tidy can escape me, and I'm left with one big pile of mess with little understanding where things are.  This occurs frequently in my craft space.



So it's no surprise that I loved this project as soon as i read it in the book by Pip Lincolne titled 'Meet Me at Mikes'.  It's a fabric roll - a great place to store all your goodies.  Since owning this book, i've made quite a few of these (one for home, one for my bag that comes to craft markets with me etc) and now it was time to make another...



I chose some gorgeous linen/hemp and cotton blended fabric, a touch of denim for strength and durability and a lovely tassel of leather strapping with beads to wrap it all up ready to pop away or in a bag.



No matter what you want to store in it, whether it be crochet related, a few needles and thread, small scissors, pen and a notebook - This fabric roll will have you organised the likes of any IKEA catalogue looks!

  1. I so need one of those, my crafting space is an absolute mess at the moment! I love that book, I got it from the library ages ago and have lots of projects I want to do from it. I'd love to see her latest book too.
