free style

A while back I talked about the freecycle network. I have been able to give away some things I didn't need anymore, and have also gotten some very useful stuff, like these cardboard tubes. They were originally used as packaging for breakable containers.



When I saw the listing, I immediately thought "STORAGE!".




I am always looking for ways to display the bits and pieces of fabric that I have collected, in a way that will inspire creativity.



I just pulled a piece of black elastic out of my "elastic drawer" to hold them together and had an instant storage thingy. I also put some in my closet to hold shoes.
