Down at the mill Adelaide Walker sells sample packs of various plant and silk fibres. It takes up quite a lot of room and after cogitating we came up with the idea of new storage. Not wanting to spend money on this it had to be something we had, or could make from what we had. We began by collecting some of these from an obliging supermarket and yes they were free and already empty, that particular pleasure was denied us.
We tried a sample design and then modified it to make these.
We needed a full twelve compartments. I thought the wine box didn’t look great so covered them with scrap paper and PVA glue.
The white is better than wine box colour but I do think it looked better before this stage. Here’ how the boxes looked on the table, they really did take up a lot of room didn’t they?
The new solution is so much neater and has definitely freed up extra space.
