Organize your embroidery thread in a handy pocket wall organizer!
I'd been on the hunt for a great way to organize my embroidery threads for ages when We R Memory Keepers sent me their Photo Fuse tool and some photo sleeves to test out. It was so easy to fuse and cut the sleeves, making pockets to the perfect size for my supplies. I'm tempted to organize my whole craft space with them!
