    Many years ago I was given a cardboard tub rimmed in metal that ice cream came in. I got the tub from an ice cream shoppe. I covered it in black fabric then glued on colorful old buttons and short pieces of a fabric measuring tape. I use it as a waste basket in my sewing room. It is still very durable but I have to reattach an occasional button that gets knocked off.

    When life gives you scraps, make a quilt.

    That is so cute. Have a Ball canning jar of Mom's that I have put her thread spools in but cannot find a shade for it. I will keep looking. Thanks for sharing.

    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

    I have some Really old thread spools (wood) with thread still on them. Too old to use, but what a creative way to display. Not to mention an inexpensive way to decorate a sewing room. I Plan on doing this! Thanks!!
