DIY sewing storage bins
No pattern, super cute idea
best fabric baskets ever! Just layer squares, wrong sides together, with a layer of batting. sew around all edges, leaving an opening to turn the sandwich. Then stitch around the edge approximately 1/2 inch apart (I use the width of my presser foot). Stitch as little or as much as you want. can use decorative stitches as well. then pinch all four corners and sew across (you are boxing the corners) fold down the triangle and secure with a button if you like. I think you can search the internet for fabric boxes and find the pattern. it's sew easy! Have fun. Your squares can be any size, 10" 12" or larger. you can box up the corners however much you want. can even use a rectangle. play with it.
Make these from client's left over fabric. storage tote pattern

Handbag Organization - - If you have purses stuffed into closets, tucked under the bed, and stashed in drawers, it's time to take inventory. Weed out worn or out-of-style pieces, keeping only those you love and will use. Then hang your purses in a prominent location so they're easy to spot and grab. Shower rings make it a snap to hold bags aloft on a closet rod. Upgrade this by using Roller Rings Shower Curtain Rings http://www.amazon.com/Roller-Curtain-Polished-Clipperton-RollerRings%C2%AE/dp/B00017UT6W/&keywords=shower+curtain+rings - for an easy effortless glide of your Purses.
I think this is a great idea even if you own your home and do not want to do a permanent change in a closet - I currently hang my bags on hangers in my office closet - need more room! I am going to try this and use the open shower curtain hooks. Rings would require to much work, I want to just lift the handbag off of the hook | if you're renting install a shower tension rod + shower curtain rings to hang purses instead of a permanent fixture
Hang purses in a prominent location so they are easy to spot. These purses hang from shower curtain rings (can also used S hooks) attached to a closet rod (or could be a curtain rod on a wall)- a space-smart way to display a lot of purses upright and clearly visible in a small space. If you don't use your handbags, pare down the collection to fit your space.

Smart! Paper towel holder for trash bags on a paper towel roll!
Have you seen this? Well let me give you a tip. This only works if you find a paper towel holder with a REALLY REALLY small center bar. They roll those garbage bags so tight that you'll never get a fat bar in there to hold these up with - it's not like they wrap the bags over cardboard roll right? Ok, just so you know. Good idea but not totally practical unless you plan for it. Repurpose a paper towel holder for trash bags #WEEKENDPepRally #DIY #LifeHacks
