I’m getting around to setting up my work station and realized that I do not have a small trash bin anymore. Floor space is limited so I needed to get a little creative . . .
We had our kitchen utensil rail from the previous place hanging around so I decided to put it to use in the work room. The intent was to use it to hold all of my cutting tools but I have since found a really great n’ old medicine cabinet from the flea market for that. So now what? No trash bin, limited floor space – maybe I’ll hang a trash bag. But that makes me feel trashy so I’ll sew some fabric around it and make it cute
I’m no professional so I needed a little guidance in what others have done when working with plastic. I found a tutorial on how to make a plastic-lined snack baggy but I didn’t feel as though I needed to iron the plastic and I wasn’t looking to use my trash bag for anything more than scrap fabric and paper. The tutorial is still really cute and a project I might try down the road.
I ended up going with a standard lined bag, just lined with plastic. The plastic bag is from TJMaxx and it says it would like to thank me for recycling their bag, knowing that I love the planet. I added boxed corners, just to add a little character with the help of some great tutorials: Lazy Girl and Jessab Crafts
Next on the list – hanging fabric holders for scissors, rotary cutter and other tools.
