I have a ton of fiber fill or stuffing for pillows and things. You know that you can squeeze fiber fill into anything, so I used a super large canvas bag my daughter bought me for Mother's day. It was black and white, so she knew it was perfect for me (and my sewing room, lol).
Isn't it pretty? It's great for a beach bag or traveling, but in the meantime it's in my sewing room.
I had a few bags of fiber fill in the basement, because I had no where to store it in my sewing room.
This is great for small decorative pillows, pin cushions or smaller craft projects.
Now it's all in one place, in my sewing room where I need it and it's easy to access.
Tucked out of the way in an unused corner.
I use other bags and tubs to store things too.
Plastic tote bags store all my wooden embroidery hoops and a metal tub stores cans/jars and future Tool Time ideas.
I store these on the floor, but pretty bags and containers can also be stored on top of cabinets or armoires for "pretty" storage options that are up and out of the way.
You can use big tote bags for other storage options too...
- heavy weight decorator fabric
- unfinished sewing or craft projects
- quilt batting
- extra pillows in a guest room
- laundry basket
- the "to be" ironed pile basket
- all the bedding for guests...including the air mattress
- emergency kit for the back of the car
- beach towels
- winter storage...gloves, hats, scarves etc
Tote bags are so pretty...they are the perfect way to store things around your house in a decorative way.
