This is my washing basket, a plastic woven web of colour.
The only problem is that with a full load of washing it tends to topple over.
Sounds like an excellent excuse for a re-purpose! How about this?
Just the right size for my ‘work-in-progress’ (currently a new blanket). The basket is easy to carry as it’s made from bendy plastic – perfect for taking out and about.
I’ve also discovered a couple of helpful uses for the handles.
A Yarn Holder – just squidge the yarn ball through the handle. The ball is trapped inside the basket so you can crochet / knit away without it bouncing out.
A Scissor Keeper – simply knot a piece of elastic onto the handles and you’ll never loose those scissors again.
Enough about my basket of yarn loveliness, what have you re-purposed / up-cycled that makes you all smiley inside? Send me your comments, I would love to know.
