Sewing Peg Board storage setup

How do you hang a Peg board? When hanging a peg board it is important you create about a 1/2″ behind the peg board, you can purchase a peg board mounting kit but all you need is a washer such as this and a screw that will fit inside of it, make sure the head of the screw is larger then one of the peg board holes and choose a hole at the top, the great thing about a peg board is you can line it up with your studs to make sure you have it nice and secure so find your studs and then choose a hole that is over the stud to screw into

If you screw it into a stud you can literally hang off of this thing haha

These are many different types of hooks you can get for your peg board, i purchased a few variety packs and then some longer ones at my local hardware store

I found these adorable buckets in my gardening section of Dollarama, these are great for small items adds addition storage and you can take it down to use and then stick it back up when your done

to organize my zippers i chose to stack them and use a binder clip to hang them, i love this idea instead of jamming them all into a drawer now i can see how many of each colour i have left!

I got this thread holder at Joann’s and i used a two prong hook and hooked it on, alot better then buying a ton of hooks for each spool

And now all my scissors and hand tools are beautifully displayed

Gold Scissors –

Olfa cutter –

Fiskar Scissors –

Sheers –

I hooked the buckets on the bottom so i dont take up any extra room and are in armsĀ  reach

I used this long basket and hooked it onto two hooks and this fits my washi tapes perfectly!

How to make a Leather tassel

As i have been on a handbag, zipper pouch kick ive decided to make a few of these leather tassels! well lucky for me my mom gave me a few old leather coats that have seen better days and i stitch ripped them and im using the smaller portions to create some of these! Very easy and look store bought!

Things you will need are:

Leather or suede

Craft Glue, fabric Tac or even school glue!

Rotary cutter and mat and a clear ruler with quarter of an in measurements (a quilting ruler works great!)

My leather measures 3″ by 4″ but of course the longer you make the one side the longer your tassel and the longer you make the length of the piece the fatter your tassel with be! with leather it is already quite thick and in the end this tassel is almost 3/4″ in diameter

step 1 – Draw a line 1/2″ down the long side of your leather (on the wrong side of your leather) (this line will act as a guide so you dont slice down the leather too far)

Step 2 – use your rotary cutter to slice a strip every 1/4″ until you reach the end

Step 3 – Attach another 1/4″ piece of leather folded in half in the corner to create a loop (where you will hang your tassel fromĀ  your purse) (make sure this is glute down very well and if you are at all concerned you can place a few stitches with a needle and thread)

step 4 – Glue all the way dfown the rest of the none cut strip (top of your tassel and start to roll your tassel from the loop end, nice and tightly)

Step 5 (optional) – if you wish you can again place a stitch to secure the end of the leather but if you use a good strong glue then you should have no problems!

Attach a ring or to a keychain or a necklace and wear!
