Meanwhile, I started cleaning kitchen cupboards, until I got bored.
Then I decided that I would make a few drawer organizers for my room. It's one of those "Use it up" projects.
You can make them any size you want if you want to measure and cut every angle or you can take the lazy way out. I prefer the latter.
I bought a box of frosted bite-sized shredded wheat this morning. I emptied the contents into a storage container.
I took my T square and measured up from the bottom of the box to 2" and 4". Then I cut down the corners of the box to the bottom.
I scored the 2" line and folded it in towards the center.
Next I grabbed the nearest tape. It happened to be white ducky tape. It could have been wide masking tape, but I didn't feel like hunting for that.
I taped the folded edges to the bottom of the box, making sure that it would still fold into box shape.
The next part could be done with spray glue, but I had a bunch of Wonder Under iron on fabric webbing, so I used that. Much less messy than glue.
First I put the lining fabric in place and turned the top edges around to the outside and pressed.
I trimmed out the corners so that the fabric would butt when the corners were closed.
I cut across the corners even with the top edges. Then I cut down the narrow end edges to the bottom, leaving a triangular flap on the long edges.
Then I pulled the corners up to meet and Ironed the flaps to the end to hold it all together.
I did a last bit of trimming with a pair of scissors.
Tessie immediately jumped in and tried to get Spike to get in with her.....Then she looked me straight in the face and said....."I think that you are going to need about 329 more of these if you want the workroom to be in order. Eat more cereal!"
The sad part is.....She's right.....See you tomorrow.
P. S. I just got a call from the vet. Mookie will be ready to come home about 4. It seems that he made a disaster area of the cage that they put him in last night! Yup. Sounds like he is back to normal.....
