Clutter Control

Something about a new year, falling snow, and gusting winds put me in the mood to tackle the mess that has been accumulating in my sewing room (actually a very small spare bedroom). In the winter, I keep the door closed to conserve heat, and the room becomes a catch-all and a total mess.

Friday, I decided it was time to bring some order to the chaos. Some items were determined good candidates for the annual yard sale and quickly taken to the garage where I will price them when it is warmer. I consolidated some of the yarn bins and folded fabric for another bin.

I decided to make some drawstring bags out of some drapery fabric and some twill. I don't have a clue where I got the fabric or why. The bags are easy to make and will be sent to a medical mission coordinator. She will add the shoe strings to the bags.

My two-day sewing binge resulted in 61 bags and used 10 yards of fabric. The room is still a mess, somewhat smaller now, but at least I accomplished something.

  1. I love the bag and the one on top, from here it looks like roses - it is georgous. 61 bags in 2 days you are deservering of a metal. Glad they are being used for a good cause. Love Deb.

  3. A good use of fabric and time. You could probably sew these bags in your sleep now.
