2 tutorials! Make your own spool and bobbin storage and fabric boards!
At least 1 inch think board. I just bought a 12x24 piece of pine at home depot.
It was 3.00. The pine is a softer wood that is easy to hammer the nails into.
Box of "finished" nails. The reason to use finished nails is so your spools of thread fit over the end of the nail.
Spray adhesive or hot glue
Staple gun if you prefer
Fabric (I used a heavier home decor type fabric)
Now onto my fabric boards...
Foam Board - I bought the industrial size at home depot. It is 12 feet by 8 feet and about 8 dollars. It also has a shiny silver side and writing on the other, but my fabric covers that up! I had them cut it into 1/4ths so it would fit in my car. (You can go by the foam board at the fabric and craft stores that is super white but I had a lot of fabric and it would have cost me a LOT LOT more!)
Exacto knife and ruler
I love having the foam so I can just pin it and it will stay. Any questions just ask!
