How to make it

  1. Determine what small craft supply items you'd like to store in your organizer (see suggestions below) and find a representative sample to sew onto each pouch. Tip: To make them easier to tie on, consider gluing together several similar items.

  2. With a loop of embroidery floss and a needle, sew through from the inside of the pocket (leaving a tail inside), wrap the thread around or through the object once or twice, then sew back through to the inside.

  3. Tie together the two ends of the thread. Repeat for each item.
