Scrap Storage....
1 Attachment(s)
I've only been quilting since 2009 but boy am I accumulating scraps! They were stuffed here and there in boxes and bins. I'd remember ahving something that would be perfect but finding it would be impossible. So this is what I came up with. My requirements were
It must be cheap!
It must fit in my space
and it must be cheap!
It must serve double duty

here's what ds and I came up with! I still need to paint it one day but so far it is working good. I can easily throw a scrap in it's color box and keep things a little neater. Plu it's fun to pull out the boxes and look!
I used scrap wood from a project of dh's and I bought the boxes.....less than 10 bucks in the whole thing! Plus paint when I decide on a color.

That is awesome! Your "architect/engineer" is pretty handsome too! I bet you'll be making lots of scrappy quilts now!
