How to embroider a desk organizer (click through for full tutorial)!While on a recent thrifting adventure I stumbled across this mini organizer… or what I can only assume is an organizer. Have you ever come across items while thrifting and have no clue as to what it should be used for? Because this was one of those times.

It’s too short to hold pens (not to mention the holes in the bottom) and not big enough to function as a mail organizer. Luckily though, I have a lot of miscellaneous craft supplies on my desk in need of a home. So after going back and forth in my mind for a few minutes, debating whether or not 29¢ was worth it, I decided that with a little makeover I could make it work.
