Dollar store here I come. The Command hooks -- then the labels from Ikea that have been sitting for years waiting for a purpose -- and my new pliers! Of course my label maker!
Tigger preparing to sort the scraps! He honestly didn't know where to begin!
The top baskets can be reached with my stool when I need. I have a project for the scraps that go in order of of color. The bigger pieces I am going to press a10Cnd cut out for my charms and strips that I can then store in plastic bins. It feels good to have them organized and a reminder that they will empty eventually!
I am loving the scrappy quilts lately! I was surprised by how much I have accumulated over the last 2-3 years. Better to have them sorted than having to sort as I need them!
Cost -- wire baskets at the dollar store $10.00 These are the medium size 12" high and about 10" across the top.
labels from Ikea - 1 package of 5 - $3 each
Command hooks - 1 package of 5 - $5
I nixed the plastic drawers on casters for scraps, as I am limited in floor space.
I already have two drawer units on wheels like this:
They both hold all my thread and machine feet. I found them of course at Ikea in their " As is" area. On both, the drawers were stuck closed and the service guys fixed them for me without cost! Both totaled $50.
The big basket of scraps was under my sewing desk, by my feet. It was a pain, but easy to toss the scraps into! Way too easy! I have tried to be a good quilter and cut those scraps and store them away in appropriate piles right away -- but it never happened! This is one more tick off my "TO DO" list!
Happy Quilting Everyone!
