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.
That’s a great basket. I love it!
Thank you. X
I cut up my old wax jacket and made it into a bag – I’d like to do more of these sometime. Also as I am not a fan of peg bags, as I prefer to be able to see my pegs easily, I made a very useful peg container out of an old Ecover plastic gallon container, by cutting it so that the top is open and it has a handle. I bound the handle with plastic tape (electrical insulation tape actually) so that the rough edges of the cut plastic were covered.
They are great ideas, thanks for sharing. You’ve got me thinking about wax jackets and raincoats now and what I can make from one! X
