My creative space needed a little New Years organisation. One of my main sewing / creative space problems is that I store stuff in the spare room and bring it out to sew in the dining room, and end up with threads all over the table and the floor, so this is my attempt at having some sort of gathering basket for the loose ends and trimmings. So far it seems to be working OK.
I made my fabric bucket using this lovely tutorial. Great instructions and very easy, but the basket turned out so much smaller than I had anticipated. It is literally half the size I had expected (it's 9cm x 11cm at the base). I originally thought I would next time double it's size, but I have to say that this tiny little fellow is growing on me. Quite cute in size small I say.
Fabrics here are vintage cotton curtains (exterior top), IKEA blue heavyweight cotton (exterior base) and Japanese lightweight cotton lining.
