    Problem... kept having to move one ruler to get to another :roll:

    Solution... made this! I used screening for the pockets and bias tape to secure it. All I did is position where I wanted the rulers and went for it. No pattern, just winged it. :lol:

    Super! I need to make something to organize mine, they are in a pile. Rulers are too expensive to dump in a pile.

    What a great idea. Is that regular screen like window screens or some sort of fabric screen?

    Great idea. Would it be OK if I copy your idea? Mine are always in the way.

    Go to the top of the page and do a search on dresden plate. You will see lots of threads and some under picture section.

    Thanks everyone. Go ahead and copy it, I don't mind. Yes, I used regular screen. I put my stencils in there too (not pictured). It holds a lot.

    Great idea ... thanks for sharing! I've got way too many rulers currently hanging on peg board but I need a couple more peg boards to hold them all. This would solve that problem!

    A few years ago, my dad made me a ruler rack. He just cut a piece of board & cut slits in it. Works great. Holds alot of rulers big & small

    After seeing lilaciris' tute, I pretty much did mine the same way. Didn't see her's before but just follow her tute and you should have no problems.

    I did quilt mine before I sewed the screen on tho.
