I came across a tip on here about presser foot storage so wanted to do something similar.
I bought a container, and made a cool wee insert. This was the result.
Presser Foot Storage
I had to go buy another for buttons, such fabulous containers.
Now if I could just find a great way to store the myriad of zippers.

I like how you organized your feet! I think I need to do something similar with my vintage sewing machine feet and accessories.

I have a whole bunch of similar containers I bought for my beading stuff, at Michaels, I think, maybe. Here in the U.S., they were under $2.00 each, sold as "craft containers." Never thought of presser feet, I think they would work very well!

I thought it was the most brilliant idea! My juki feet just came in a little vinyl zip bag, it drove me nuts. I was used to my Bernina having a plastic case, that had the feet all nicely set in it. So desperately needed something so I wasn't searching around in vain looking for a foot, or going hmmm what on earth does THIS one do lol

Love it! But I have so many feet, I'd need several boxes. That's my problem now!

You're right, these are great storage boxes. I use 2 of these for my presser feet also! They are good for buttons, as well as embroidery floss, etc. I like that I can adjust the inserts for whatever size space I need inside.

Good tip!

ETA: Right now I have all my zippers in one of the drawers of a plastic cart with drawers. It's hard to see what I've got, but it's not too bad. If someone has a better solution for that, I'd love to hear it!

nice - I've been using a divided container, but no labels. It does get a bit tiring rooting through to find the one I want.

thanks for the template!

I've got my zippers on a big metal ring a bit like a keychain. If I had more I might separate them onto several rings, probably by length.

I put a paperclip through the hole in the zipper pull, and then put the paperclip on the ring. (For zippers that don't have that hole, I either staple the top end together and put a paperclip through that, or use a binder clip.)

I used to hang the ring on a nail, but with a kitten in the house that doesn't work so well, so now it's all in a bag. But I can take it out and put it away and it stays organized.

The advantage of being a beginner is, nobody has told you "That can't be done." This is also the disadvantage of being a beginner.
