    I had 2 big piles of batting scraps that I am saving to make a dog bed for my Sis' dog. This morning I thought I am throwing them away because I don't have any room to store them. I forgot that I had those large vaccum storage bags so for fun I stuffed one bag as full as I could get it and was surprized at how small of a space they will take up now.. 1 bag was all I needed to put all the scraps in.
    :-) :-) :-) :shock:

    Isn't this cool?

    Well... I hope your vac/store bags work better than mine!! I have several different brands and not one seems to be holding well at all. Imagine having about 5 yds of fake fur stored in one, nice and neat and tidy.. now imagine opening the closet door ond day and being surprised at how nice neat and tidy has expanded.... alot!!! LOL Can't get those dumb bags to hold fur, yarn or anything! hmmm.....

    I love the concept but haven't had a lot of luck with it yet! Great idea though!!
