    Gotta love those Ziplocs!

    My scraps are outgrowing their home, so out of the tubs and into these bags. I love the bags, you can see thru them, they have a handle and comes in diffrent sizes. They are also reasonable in cost too. A win-win!

    I use them all the time for my fabrics .... I can see what's in there and can get to it pretty easily.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I have been saving and using the plastic container from like the produce and bakery. clean them out then cut up different sizes, label and they stack nice. when I am ready for scrappy I just get the container out and go to town sewing.

    I love them ... So many uses! For some things I prefer them over tubs, as they can colaspe and expand.

    I use zip locks a lot but have never seen the ones with the handles. I like the 2 gallon ones I buy in Walmart. I try to put each project Im working on in one of them so I can pick one up when I go to Sit and Sew and everything is in one place.

    I have used them for many years... they are getting easier to find... I store everything from fabric to projects to clothes in them.... but my best find use is, I store my embroidery head/hoop ( I have a combo machine) in one when not in use.. itis the perfect size and keeps everything dust free

    I use the giant one from $tree, flip it over and cover my machine. It still can get air from the bottom since I don't zip it shut and it keeps the dust and other junk from landing on my machine when not in use.
