    Cute and funny, but I'm not sure I would feel like I got them clean enough to put my fabric in them. But will make me watch what I throw away in the future. There just might be something there.......

    WOW...this is great!! My mom gave me a few cookie containers that I use to store my scraps but what this lady does is genius! I'm going to look at everything in a new way now.

    Great, just what I needed, another excuse to eat cookies!! :lol:

    Every time I have thrown a container away, I kept thinking there was some other use, but didn't want them piling up. Wasn't thinking "sewing room", but sure will now. Thanks!

    A great idea except most of the fruits I buy are not prepackaged and if they are the containers are somewhat flimsy. What works for me is the plastic boxes chocolate milk mixes (Hershey's or Nestles or even powdered lattes) come in. I stick on an Avery label with the size of strip--ie 1", 1 1/2", etc and they stand in a neat row near my cutting mat and I immediately cut small scraps into measureable sizes as I cut my fabrics. Also handy for those short strips of left over bindings, etc.

    What a great way to recycle plastic and buy more fabric!
