Melissa from Blank Slate Patterns and Melly Sews shows how you can make these clear vinyl storage tubes to help organize your sewing or other craft supplies. You can make them in any size. She gives dimensions to make small tubes. They’ll hold your buttons, snaps, and other small items , and the clear sides let you see easily what’s inside. I think you can probably even give them drawstring tops if you fold a deeper hem around the top and make a small snip to thread through the casing. Go to Melly Sews for a tutorial.
