So one of the best things about blogging is meeting other bloggers and seeing their creativity. I have to admit all creative projects spark something in me. I love seeing the process behind what people do and how they execute it.....So I can totally rip 'em off!
A few weeks back my blog friend Amy from Stow and TellU posted these really cool boxes. Which you can see here
As I read I looked at my storage system here and as I mentioned previously I have been on a big clean up in my craft room.
It wasn't pretty. Then I was carting an old beer box and I noticed that they hold nearly 14 kg, and I thought they'd be perfect.
So I followed Amy's tutorial over here but I decided not to make the top, since they were on a high shelf.
Then I just added a label.
Storage solved and all for free, please don't concern yourself, Julian didn't drink 5 slabs of beer, the lovely guys down the local bottle shop saved a few for me so I could get all the same size.
Even though it's well past Easter I'm going to show you what I made using my other favorite Amy's (While Wearing Heels) tutorial for Madeleine for Easter. Please excuse his wrinkled face, I used iron glitter for his nose and do you think I could get rid of those wrinkles..No! However Amy's tutorial here (and free pattern) uses embroidery so wrinkles are a Mellywood special only. Also I am a very average sewer, this pattern is really easy and oh so cute, go over and pin it for next Easter.
