Bins, Boxes, Baskets, Bags, Buckets, Barrels….if it will hold fabric and or notions we will carry our stuff in it!
We had such a great time with the Heritage Quilters of Huntsville yesterday….but what really was fun for me was to go table to table and look at the goodies that everyone brought. You know, we all have our favorites --- certain things that MUST accompany us to class, that make our own personal sewing space that much better for us!
These are just a few of the fun things I found:
Plastic baskets are great for organizing strips…these fit the 2” X 5” braid rectangles perfectly..but LOOK at that tiny laundry-basket-style-cuteness!! Just perfect for the red accent squares…FUN! ((And it's lime green, what’s not to like about that either?!))
What about a repurposed cutlery container from the goodwill?! I liked the compartments in this one!
Cardboard boxes are NOT just for shipping! Boxes of uniform size can be filled with strips and squares, labeled easily and stacked on shelves with full projects in them!
Plastic containers with lids come in all sizes. Nice because they are see-through….and I can’t resist the storage aisles at any given store….
OH WAY TOO CUTE AND TINY!! This little storage bin just FIT Lisa’s cornerstone squares!
Lisa also had this adorable felted wool thread caddy. Can you see how the thread runs through ALL the needles in the cover? Just pull one needle AND the thread……….perfect!
A friend made this for her….what a sweet gift! And LIsa had more to share!
What about using a toothbrush case for pens , pencils and other markers?
Have you seen THESE little caddies? I’m thinking this would be great for a traveling hexagon project!! Its by Yazzi --
This is the front and back of a pocket caddy…made to fit over a 5 X 7 $1.00 picture frame!
Wouldn’t these make great gifts??
Because there are pockets on both sides of the caddy, look how much stuff is accessible at her fingertips?
And of course we all did our best to EMPTY this container before we could fill it with other quilty stuff! YUMMMMMMM!!!!
There is more to share from yesterday’s workshop…but I’ve got to be there for today’s workshop…in 15 minutes..so I’ll upload MORE later!
Have a super Saturday!
