My latest putzer project:



I'm really pleased with how well the worn-out jeans edge worked out as trim.

I am going to make 2 more little buckets to go along with this so they all nest together for transport to classes in my tote bag.

I use a larger, similar thing next to my machine all of the time at home... but I wanted a smaller one to take to classes.

A few more pics are on my blog.

Love it! Time to patent?
I can see them in the kitchen for tools, for cosmetics, for those little toy parts, on and on....

I love how you use what is the best part of the jeans style--the way the fabric wears around the decorative stitching--in a way that is not obviously a pair of jeans. It is a fantastic trim, and a good choice for the edge of a storage cup, which would end out looking tired and worn if you made it from the same material as the decorative sides.

Also, your sewing looks great.

What did you use for an insert? I made about half a dozen of these as gifts and used a mug, (free online pattern here) but don't like how thick it was. BTW, I love the selvedges! Great idea to use them up. I have a box of them somewhere.

I've seen the mug patterns, but they didn't do it for me... they weren't quite right. I like the flexibility of putting pens, straight scissors, rulers, screwdrivers, etc all the way around the perimeter instead of little pockets.

I've been using two of the clothesline bowls together for the last year or so next to my sewing machine.. and I can't imagine *not* having all of my stuff stuffed there now.

I used 8 & 16 ounce dairy containers (think sour cream) that I trimmed a bit to make the shape I wanted.

A little more about this organizer is shown here.

I'm still going to make two more... and I have an idea to take the jeans idea a little farther - we'll see if it works out or if it duds out.

Very nice. I have two of the mug jackets cut out, or I'd be really tempted to try this. I've been using a rectangular bag with handles (the pattern name escapes me at the moment). But it sags, and the pens, etc. don't stay upright. After a couple of close calls with seam ripper and very sharp scissor tips,I knew it was time to change. Yours looks like the scissor tips are well-protected, both for the scissors and the person reacing for them.

I use a rectangular bag too. I bought 2 seal rite containers- they fit perfectly inside and protect the pins from poking through. The fabric shears, paper scissor, pinking shears and large rotary don't fit so a use a recycled silver ware roll up storage cloth for those.
I like the small containers- when I am home I take them out of the travel bag, take off the lids and put them in my drawer. Now I still have things contained and easy to access in the drawer.

Stupid question, but is there a weight in the bottom to keep it from toppling over if you put a bigger pair of scissors in one side?
