just in case you want to show your crafty side (or gift someone who’s crafty!). :)

what’s your craft of choice? mine would either be no. 1 or no. 4… or both!

magnetic strip catch all

i remember seeing this project way back when on the farm chicks blog and have kept it in mind all this time! with a simple magnetic knife strip and some cute fabric, you can have a sewing room catch all in no time.

magnetic strip catch all


– magnetic knife strip (mine is from ikea)

– spray adhesive (optional)

– glue gun

– scissors

– fabric to recover with


cut the fabric into a long rectangle big enough to wrap around the edges of your magnetic strip. spray with adhesive and tack into place. using a hot glue gun, secure the fabric to the back side. mount according to instructions and voila!

magnetic strip catch all

what do you think? a magnetic strip next to my sewing area has been the most useful thing. it not only holds scissors, but spare needles and seam rippers, too!
