    Just finished, it may not be beautiful but it is functional. I used ultrastiff plastic canvas to create this organizer for the area of my bedroom that I call my "sewing room". The clear canvas lets me see where everything is located. I think, I am going to need at least two more.

    I used the regular size sheets then sew/whip stitched the panels together, this is four sheets wide.

    That is really cool. How did you make the little shelves that are holding the thread?

    Me again. Would you consider putting a tutorial together.
    The more I look at your pictures, the more I love it.
