Fancy Friday

I was rummaging through my neglected sewing kit on Monday and I thought, "man for never getting in this thing, it sure is disorganized." It had a gazillion random extra buttons that I have no clue what article of clothing they came with or fell off of. Sound familiar?

There's got to be a more efficient way to organize this - right?? There sure is thanks to Martha Stewart. She suggests in addition to your sewing kit that holds the tape measure, pins, needles and scissors to have a "clothing fix-it kit."

A clothing fix-it kit is an easy, budget-friendly project to keep all your fixings for your clothes in one place. All you need to do is get a package of plastic business card organizers (available at your local office supply store) and fill each compartment with a button and thread. Label each slot with what article of clothing it goes to in case you are in need of the spare. Organize into a three-ring binder and store near the sewing kit.

And for its organizational brilliance, it tickled my fancy!!
