The thread on where to store handbags, mentioning dust bags for the good handbags, has given me another idea for my decluttering project.
I have loads of old sheets, towels, shirts, tee shirts, etc, which I have been collecting to make into cleaning rags.
I am really not very good at crafts but got a lot of satisfaction from making a whole bunch of cleaning cloths by running round squares with the overlock machine. I now have neat piles of uniform sized cloths in a variety of colours.
Some of the old things are too nice for just cleaning, though, and I have had ideas for simple items to make from these:
Aprons, bibs, face flannels from towels which have frayed edges, shoe bags, dolls' clothes, other accessories for dolls, bean bags (the kind you throw) and a smock for DGS for painting, as he starts school after the summer.
By the time I've done more of that, maybe my sewing skills will have improved and I can start on some "proper" needlework.
I have 4 huge washing baskets full of old sheets, etc, What else can I use them for?
