Repurposing the Sock Sorter

I love to find different uses for items. As you can imagine I have a lot of ribbons because of the products I used to make and the crafting I love to do. Trying to keep them all together, tidy and not having them unravel all over was posing a challenge.

I tried putting them all on a skirt hanger and it was good because it kept them all together but whenever I moved it or tried to unroll one of the ribbons, all the ones around it would unravel too. It wasn't the solution.

The other day at the dollar store I came across this pretty purple sock sorter. It is canvas, light-weight and perfect for the job at hand. I quickly filled it with spools of ribbons and now they are easy to see, right at my finger-tips and best of all, organized.

Now I just need to get back to the store to buy a few more for the rest of my ribbon collection. Happy crafting everyone!
