(If I knew this would be the subject of my post, I would have tried to be better prepared.)
Libby recently posted about how she is using a basket.
Here is how I used a laundry basket while cutting fabric.
This basket holds a (can you guess?) quilt!
I should have gotten the baskets that fit under this bench.
For a while, I kept thinking about getting baskets to go above my kitchen cabinets. Now that we have added 12 inches of extra cabinets over the original ones, that idea is less practical.
I own 1 of those fancy schmancy name brand baskets - it was a gift.
Almost anyone who knows me, know that I am a bag lady.
I have made bags. I am not a fan of making bags. I have been gifted hand made bags - yay! I have a pile of handled paper grocery sacks - great for carrying charity donations.
In the past when I sewed & cut up a storm, I reused gift bags for the snippets & thread clippings.
All of my UFO's are in a bag of some sort - sometimes even more than one bag (Zippered plastic bags are not included in this list, but they are in use.)
I have them hanging on over the door hooks, on door handles, on shelves, & on the floor.
I use several bags just to get to work. My breast pump is in a bag, my lunch/snack/water goes in a bag or 2, my pocket book is technically a bag, & I have a back pack that usually holds one of those bags & the other detrius of my life.
In addition to the diaper bag (when you are using cloth diapers, you don't have enough room in a standard diaper bag especially considering the milk transportation & other baby ephemera), we are getting a jumbo Land's End bag to carry Jacob's stuff to & from day care - my bags are in use. Oh & I think the way that they stay open will be useful for the diapers.
Any other basket or bag ladies (gents) out there? How do you use them? Do you have a love/hate relationship with them?
