Lace Organizer/Wrap for Laces

Do your often wonder what would be a good way
to store all of your smaller lengths of lace
like this?


 Well this is just one solution that I have come up with
and of course it is made from a lace tray cloth too!


 It is a wrap/folder/holder
which has been divided into two rows of 4 pockets
with make a total of 8 pockets.



 It therefore holds 8 cardboard spools or reels
which I have gessoed and stamped with
a shabby chic style flourish
and
it folds up like this

 



 

 I've tried to leave plenty of room for expansion too!
The  back looks like this below
 
 

 and it folds up (front and back below)


 to look like this

 

which will look very full when the laces are all inside.

It has been a little mind challenge but I am happy
with the result and am pleased to say
that I've added it to my
♥♥♥
I also have more reels (unpainted) if anyone should need more.

Now I'd be interested to hear how everyone else
stores their laces.
This wrap makes it very portable to take anywhere
when working on smaller projects.

Love and hugs,
Suzy

  3. Such a beautiful way to organize beautiful laces! I'm ashamed to say that mine are all mish-mashed into a plastic tote. Shameful, I know!!

  5. What a great idea!!!!! You're a genius, ya know?

    I store my laces (and ribbons, too) in plastic see-thru boxes. Where'd I get the boxes, you ask? They used to house cookies from Sam's Club. Yeah ... I have lots of those containers. And the extra pounds that were accumulated by eating all the cookies.

    Happy lace-ing!

  8. That is a gorgeous way to store your lace, Suzy! I have a decorative over-the-door holder with 10 faux crystal hangers, and my laces hang both from the knobs, as well as on the metal supports between the hangers. It has a double row of crystal knobs, so lots of area for hanging my lace. This way, I get to see it whenever I'm in my art room, and I don't have to worry about creases.

  12. Oh, Suzy!
    Your lovely lace holder is so elegant. I put my ribbon-type laces on vintage spools, wrapping the laces around the spools like thread on a spool. Then I use a straight pin to secure the lace at the ends. It's very easy to find which laces I want to use, as they are in my glass-door studio cabinet as they are all in rows for easy access.
