    fabric boxes

    A friend of mine showed me the pattern for these scrappy boxes in a book called Sunday Morning Quilts. I made each one in the color of the scraps that I would store in them, and put little fabric handles on the front of each one so I can easily take them down from the top of my cabinets. I love them!

    I love them too. Very clever to be colour coded and with a grab handle. Good thinking there.

    great organizing idea
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Dual purpose - using scraps to make box and to store them in it. Good idea.

    Great boxes, they add a bright color to the top of your cupboard.
    I don't know how to do that.....YET!
