I have a lot of stuffed animals littered around the house. They are squishy and I love them. Some have homes but I have quite a few recently acquired ones that have nowhere to go. And I figured, why not make a new home for them? I have seen stuffed animal hammocks around the internet, and I thought this was the perfect solution! But instead of buying something pre-made, why not make it myself? It seemed easy enough!
I love small things and tin cases fit well into this category. There are so many possibilities of things that can be done with tin cases. My first endeavor in this series is a jewelry case! I found that I had a lot of loose earrings, and I needed a place to store them. I was also curious if this would be good for rings (it did not have the depth for that though). This project was simple and took very few supplies but it just perfect for what I needed!
A few weeks ago, I made a basket for all of my silicone molds and it looked amazing. And then more arrived and I cursed myself. Especially since the new molds that arrived were very small and easily could be lost. So I decided that making a pencil case type bag would be the best for keeping the molds contained. I normally do not work with zippers when I sew and I have been trying to introduce them more into my work. So this was the perfect challenge as it also filled one of my needs!
I was rifling through my knitting needles to find the pair I needed and with one small, unintended movement - the needle scattered all over the floor. And that's when I thought, there has to be a better solution. This project is going to be split into two parts: a small holder which focuses on storage for double pointed knitting needles and a large knitting needle for my pairs and circular needles. Today, we're looking at the small holder.
