We are constantly creating awesome sewing projects in the office and our sewing station is constantly in a state of chaos!  Instead of using bins and plastic bags to organize our sewing materials I made this wall mounted sewing station to organize all of our sewing materials.

Step 1: Materials

Wood Board - 36" x 12", get a board that fits your wall
Fabric - to cover the board to make it pretty and to make bags
Nails - large and small nails, large nails are for thread spools and small are for bobbins, make sure the head of the nails are small so the spools can fit on them
Screws - to fasten board to wall
Eye Bolt Screws - Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Pin Cushions (2) - I made my own, but you could buy them
buena idea
<p>This is a really great idea! I've done this with peg board before and it was really useful, but this is a great cheap alternative that looks really nice. Thanks for posting</p>
That's amazing! At school (I'm a textiles student), all the bobbins and thread spools and everything is always so messy, we constantly have to tidy it all up and put everything back into their trays. Maybe we could make a larger sclae version of this to keep everything tidy :) <br>Great work :D
Carleyy, i don't know how i missed this 'ible, since i generally watch for all of yours, but i'm sure glad i found it. i've got a few ideas for doing it a bit differently, but this is an awesome inspiration! :)
Made this for my wife for Christmas, she loved it!! Great idea!<br>I took the advice of sharley and used spray glue to hold the fabric to the wood, now it wont pull away when removing velcro'd items
Thats Great!!! You should post some pictures!
Here's my slimmed down version, 24&quot;x9&quot;. I have yet to add the little pouches. The other thing i want to add is some kind of bar magnet with a handle to wave over the table to help find any loose pins.<br>Once again, thanks for the great idea!<br>
Looks awesome!!!
I love this, my hubby is putting up shelves for me and I think this would be a nice edition to go with them! Thanks for sharing!
I would add to this instructable that for the fabric to look more polished and smooth to use spray glue to the surface of the board before applying glue to the backside. This way you can smooth out the fabric and have no air bubbles. Then you can secure it with the hot glue. <br> <br>Great idea. I have to do one for my craft center!
Cool! Looks very handy and useful!
I love it! Mounting something on a wall instantly improves it's quality tenfold.
How simple and how fantastic!
love this idea! I have a stair step design countertop thread holder but it took up so much space that I stopped using it. This takes up way less space love it!
Very good idea very useful and handy,,,,,,good job
Nice, it looks really handy!
Great Idea, and it looks awesome too. Internet pat on back for you!
