Studio Eight :: Zippers

It's been a few months since I've done any studio improvements, other than a new machine, of course. But recently I was totally inspired by Katy/The Littlest Thistle and her recent Organizing Your Sewing Supplies series, and I even challenged her for a solution for zippers. I was still mulling over my options when hubby came home with a nondescript household hanger for a totally different purpose. Lucky for me, it didn't work for him, so I nabbed it, thinking it would be totally perfect hanging in my sewing closet, holding my zips.



So I ordered some 2" binder rings, grabbed some paper clips and blank tags, and started sorting my collection of zippers.


Each ring holds one size of zipper, and is labeled so it's easy to see what size I'm looking for. I had more than six different sizes, so some hooks hold multiple rings, but they're all still pretty visible and easily accessible. Better than all stuffed in a zipped pouch, eh?


So I'm pretty pleased, and grateful to Katy for giving me an idea I could adapt for my own space!

  6. Alright, this is genius! My zippers are crammed in a box and it's impossible to know the sizes easily...this is a great idea. Now, can you come up with more wall space in my tiny closet?!

  8. What a super idea, Debbie! You're so organized, and this looks pretty too. One of these days I'll have to collect mine that are loosely stashed in an oversized bin, organize and display them. Thanks for the great suggestion and visuals!
