What a busy week already. I have been sick since before Thanksgiving and I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I hope I am not jinxing myself. The doctors are still having a hard time figuring out what is going on and without getting into a ton of medical stuff lets just say I will be sick for a while and things are going to get worse on the RA side before it gets better.
I finally found my sewing room. DD#2 came home from collage at the end of her fall semester and will be home until mid April when she goes back for her spring semester. It has been interesting with her home at the same time that the holidays started. Then with me being sick she just this week got moved back into my sewing room. We received some great sets of drawers from a small business that we moved into our room on Friday. They are huge. They are 60" long, 30" deep, and 24" tall. We have two set with 4 drawers and one set with two very deep drawers. PERFECT storage. These drawers will take the place of three large three drawer plastic bins, five small three drawer plastic bins, and a large 6 drawer dresser. All of these things taking up our sewing/bedroom. Below are pictures of two of the set of drawers.
With the new drawers I decided that I wanted new baskets to hold my scraps in now that I do not have the plastic bins. I found a very cool tutorial on Sew4Home for
Stylish Baby Nursery: Collapsible Storage Baskets. I used the pattern and the hints at the end to make the baskets fit the new drawers. Below is a pile of the card board pieces that I cut and the baskets before I added the card board and the binding to the top.
I decided that I wanted the main part to be white and then the binding to match the color inside.
I LOVE THEM!! Below you can see the five I finished today. I will be making 11 more. I want to fill up two drawers with my scraps. All the way through the rainbow plus a few extra baskets for fun fabric.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope that you have a fun time hanging out here for a bit.
