Usefullness of scraps - making things from remnants


There is something so satisfying about making something useful out of the leftovers from another project.  I love making solutions to our needs out of materials we already have at hand.

 I am so grateful to have the tools and space to make these things for our home.

A trash bin for my studio to catch all the little bits of fluff that don't go in the stuffing bag. I originally intended to have a level top to the rectangular bin but then thought of adding holes for handles making it easy to pick up and move.

And an un-paper towel holder and dispenser for under the kitchen sink. It's been many years since we've used paper towels and it's lovely to have a quick solution that we can throw in the wash!
