DIY Threads and bobbin organizer

Too many threads and bobbins? Here’s how I finally organized mine.

Ikea item used: Alex drawer unit. (I used the 9-drawer)

Remove the base of an IKEA Alex unit.
Cut two pieces of cushion corner angle, corresponding to the drawer’s length.

Cut 5 pieces of dowel, corresponding to the drawer’s width.
Drill 5 holes in each cushion corner angle to insert the dowel parts.

Make holes for the dowels

Cut dowels to the right length

It’s adjusted on the drawer frame!

Check the fit

Hooks are made with wire twisted around the dowel.

The holders are made with a thicker wire.
The shape can’t be simpler.
