Coffee Can. Organizer.

Posted on August 16, 2012 by prairiemoonquilts in Organizing

My friend, Cindy, came to visit me again at the end of July.

Once again, she arrived bearing gifts.

Last time, she brought me some red squares for my Checkerboard quilt, and a scissors fob.

This time, she brought more red squares, and . . .

. . . a Coffee Can Organizer that she made for me — I love it!

I’m all about organization tools, even though none of them ever seem to really help me.

But I’m using this one, so we’ll see . . .

She used a pattern by Lynn Knox called “Pocket Cannister”.

It has TONS of pockets. Lots of places to stash tools for easy access.

It’s fit over a plastic coffee canister, so it’s nice and sturdy.

Here’s the inside empty.

I put in mine the things I use at my longarm. I previously had them all just tossed willy-nilly into a ceramic bowl. So the bowl was pretty, but it was all just jumbled in there, and I had a hard time grabbing the one thing I needed each time.

Now it’s all in one place, separated with the pockets, and easy to grab. I even added other things I need over there, but kept stored somewhere else. This should save me time in the future, right?

I even still have some leftover pockets, so I can add more things if I need to.

If you think you need one of these for yourself, and I’m sure you do, just click HERE to find the pattern. Or find yourself a Cindy who will make one for you! Thanks, Cindy, for making one for me!

    If I had something like this, maybe I could find my scissors and marking pen all the time, they always get misplaced. So nice of your friend Cindy to make it for you, thanks for sharing!

  3. What a cute organizer! I like that. I have all my stuff in a big organizer bag. I love it. When I go somewhere to sew, I just grab it and go. I have all my tools with me in one place.
