Welcome to Day 5 of
If there is one thing that might be considered weird hoarding, it's my bedding packaging obsession. I just find those strong plastic bags are fab for holding bits and bobs and I ALWAYS keep them.
As you know I'm doing my craft room at the moment and wanted to organize the trim and ribbons a little better than dumping them in a bag in a drawer.
So I grabbed:
Batting and sewing supplies
I sewed the fabric onto the batting like so
Then I sewed down the two sides of the bag. I decided not to sew the bottom just to give it a bit of movement when they're full. By the way I didn't use anything special to sew vinyl, I have read that you have to have different needles and put tape on the feet, but it worked without and this vinyl was pretty sturdy, I suggest you check your manual if you're not sure. My machine is a 20 year old Janome.
Made sure my second line measured up, matching the top.
Added labels and filled her up.
DIY Delight or Disaster? I'm super happy with this, it cost me nothing to make and it's really handy. I think I am going to do one for my kitchen down the track. Delight!
