I hate to waste things. I have boxes of fabric scraps, and I keep all manner of tiny bits of wool. For the most part, if they are long enough, I use them to crochet granny squares (or hexagons). This little beauty is not actually a cat blanket (sorry Lilly).
Last weekend, though, our neighbours gave us a cd cabinet. They were just going to throw it out. Initially I was going to put it in my studio for storage, but I realised that it was substantially bigger than our current cd tower and that I could fit all our cds in it (rather than scattered around in boxes).
But that left this old IKEA cabinet which is 12 years old...what was I to do with it? It struck me that it would make fantastic storage for my wool stash.
But then I was left with all my "scraps'; little tiny balls and even smaller odds and ends in more plastic bags. So I decided to make some little crocheted bowls/baskets to a) use up those tiny scraps and b) have a place to put my little wool balls.
I did make two new cushion covers earlier in the week:
