Storing and organizing fabric – I store fabric in 3 med size bins – grouped in large plastic zip bags - by color.  I keep a card file on what is in each bin – it is much easier to flip through a card file box than digging through the bins when I am looking for something.  The photo is what I put on the index cards.  I usually write the info on the cards in pencil so I can change it if I use the fabric.

Yoda like costume  Pattern was taken from a robe and PJ pattern.  Robe adjusted by cutting on center line.  The head piece and glove pattern was a from a dinosaur costume I made last year and just added ears.  Used interfacing and wire to make the ears stand out.

Key Cabinet / storage altered an existing picture, cut a piece of 3/8 plywood an inch smaller that the length and a half an inch narrower than the picture. Glued/nailed a small strip of wood to the plywood to hold the cup hooks.  Set back about 2 inches from the edge. Attached the plywood to the picture with 2 small hinges and attached a magnetic catch to the other side.  Screwed it to the wall.  Because the plywood is set back from the frame of the picture it disappears from sight.

Hair band holder – take a large juice can – top removed, cover with 3 layers of quilt batting.  Cover in fabric – just sew a large tube for the outside and a smaller one for the inside - store hair bands on the outside and put other accessories on the inside.
