In case you don't have xray eyes... the bin is full of my overflowing collection of sewing supplies. This has NOT been an adequate storage system. Anytime I tried to find anything I'd end up having to rifle through the entire bin... and as is always the case... I could never fit everything back in.
My bin and overflow and sewing machine were crammed in the bottom of this closet. The closet also holds our *dressy* clothes and Mr F's more occasional foot wear.
I took the hanging sweater shelves from my bedroom closet (what was the point of having it in there... they were empty and my clothes were piled on the floor in front of my closet anyway). I took out all my fabric and folded them and put them away on the shelves. Now I can see everything I have (and get to it). I can also keep works in progress on them where I can see them but they are out of the way of preying hands.
I took 3 small shoe box bins and sorted out ribbons, thread, and patterns into them.
I have a larger bin with paints and another with misc sewing notions.
I found the plastic shoe organizer (that had been left in the basement since the move) and filled the pockets with the rest of my craft supplies. Everything is now easy to see, get to, and keep organized.
There was still plenty of room for the clothes and shoes...
And I not only now know where the tape is...
I can finally shut that closet door!
