To put rolls of paper in

Jar of threadsI’m slowly trying to clean up the house for summer. Fitting fabric into the cupboards, compressing the stash so that I can see what I have but still move around in the house…

Putting away, giving away, selling, making. But slowly!

So finally I took the sewing machine out again, and made a fabric basket (out of fabric that I allready had) to hang on the craft shelf and to put all the paper rolls in that I keep buying (for present wrapping, collage, book covers etc. etc.):

Fabric basket for paper
Now, why didn’t I make one a year ago when I saw this idea in a magazine? Takes the rolls away from the floor too.

    You are a genius, thats just what I need, I’m fed up with rolls of wallpaper falling out of my wardrobe everytime I open it. The pattern of the fabric is lovely and bright. I’m really excited about making something I need for a change.

    Great paper basket, love the fabric.
    Thanks for your comment on the mittens. I made them from a pattern for children’s mittens, from this book, and i just made them a little longer. The original mitten is a bit wide.
    I only had a copy, now I’ve lost it :(
    I’ve used Pt2 from Per Tryving instead of Tove.

    Clever AND pretty idea for wrapping paper. Right now, they all fall over everytime I try to pull one roll out of the closet.

    Someone else who loves that fabric bag for paper rolls. It’s so nice to be able to see what you’ve got! And nothing decorates the studio space better than studio supplies.

    I’m loving your work! Thanks for your comment (long ago, but I just got back to blogging) on the Gruffalo–have you seen The Snail and the Whale (written and illustrated by the same team)?

  17. Hey, what a great idea for wrapping paper! I may need to copy you! And thanks for your comments about my soft baby book..!

    Now if I was not afraid of my sewing machine, I would try that! That is a great idea for storing the paper rolls. My rolls sit in a magazine rack here by the computer and my little one is always playing with them, spilling them out onto the floor. Nice that is it up so high!
