Here's an idea for organizing your sewing room and preserving your sanity. What to do with those odd shaped and sometimes large shaped items that won't fit in a drawer? Hang them on the wall!
I use push pins to store my rulers and tape measures. For things that don't have a hole, or for things that I don't want to ruin by making a hole in it, I use office binder clips...those black clamp-like things with silver "handles". These clamps are great for all sorts of objects that you need to hang, whether it be on the wall using a push pin, nail or screw or on a string (like if you need to dry paintings or screen prints). My rulers are right there at my finger tips. I don't have to go looking around in drawers or table tops or shelves to find them..they're right there!
