    At one point I had a Bernina sewing machine, and just LOVED the foot/bobbin storage case.
    Now that I have a Baby Lock, I want to be able to organize my feet, but cant seem to wrap my brain around what would work best.

    So please share...
    Are your feet all nicely organized somehow?
    Are they simply jumbled together in a container?
    Somewhere in the middle of those 2 extremes?

    Mine are in an organizer I keep by my machine that holds small rulers, pens, pencils, scissors, and rotary cutters.

    I have a little storage box that has 9 drawers in it. I store them in that... I found it at a thriftstore.
    It is only about 4" tall and 6 or 7" wide... perfect for all of my feet except the walking foot :D:D:D

    I have had them all tossed togheter in a box.. but recently got on a organzing zpree, because honesly , some of the feet I could not remermber what they were for...
    I bought some tool organziners. I bought about 10 of these things. I have one for buttons, one for sequins, one for beads, etc, and one for sewing feet... The size of the " squares " are changable by little dividers that slide in and out. making the squares longer. I made labels for all my feet and taped the label into the bottom of each square. I love it... so far it's the best thing I have done in my sewing room!!!

    I have a small tackle box for my feet and needles. It's cheaper to look in the fishing aisle than the craft aisle. Same brand, practically same style a few dollars less. :)

    I keep all my feet in ice cube tray compartments in a drawer next to my machine. I have them in numerical order so they are easy to find when I need them.
