In previous posts, you will have seen that I like using a Pako Floss Organiser to keep my threads organised when working on a particular project. I really like using this organiser but the only problem is that you always need to wrap it in something or put it in a little bag to ensure that the threads don’t get dirty, especially when you are on the go.

I always had the idea to make a bag for it but never quite got round to it. However, since I am using my floss organiser a lot at the moment for my miniature needle painting project and since I managed quite well when making my slate frame bag I thought I would give it go.

I didn’t make it overly complicated but just a nice little wrap that is sturdy, protects the threads and organiser and looks good! Have a read of the how-to below if you would like to make one yourself.

Materials

Instructions

  • Cut from each corner of the outer fabric, lining and batting a pieceย measuring 24 cm * 15 cm. Your pieces of fabric should look something like this:
  • Iron the batting to the wrong side of the lining fabric.
  • Put the outside fabric and lining wrong side together and stitch nearly all the way around, leaving a small opening for turning and leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
  • Turn right side out and ladder stitch the opening shut.
  • Machine-stitch the outer fabric and the lining fabric together from inside corner to inside corner (see below).

  • Wrap your floss organiser as shown.
  • Fold your cord or leather strap in half and attach the hook as shown.
  • Stitch the cord/strap securely to the outside fabric and cover the raw edges with a label or other decoration.
  • Stitch the cord/strap to the bottom of the wrap.

You have finished your floss organiser wrap!
