This morning I found some really nice clam shell type eyeglass cases. I bought two.(the third one I already had.)
This is another of those "take along mini project" ideas. At a dollar a piece, I could afford a couple.
I turned them into small project cases. Each one has enough stuff in them to make several projects of the same kind.
The first one has coiled basket making as its theme. It has wire, scissors, several needles, over dyed embroidery thread and a small bit of glue. Believe it or not, there is enough stuff in there to make about 10 baskets! Here we are assuming that you already know how to make coiled baskets....If not, there are instructions elsewhere in the blog in the basket section.
The second one is for doing rugs. You can get a couple of rugs in there, up to 3 x5 inches or so. I have six colors of floss in this one. There could be more. There is a pattern in the lid and a pair of scissors. I didn't include the glue, because I probably won't finish a rug in one sitting.
Last is a kit for crocheting afghans or other items. Five spools of thread and a #14 hook is all that is needed. You could include the pattern if you needed it. Print it out and fold it up. Usually a pattern for a real baby afghan comes out about the right size in mini and there are a lot of those on the net.
I am thinking that there are a lot of different little kits that could be made like this. Bookbinding comes to mind. Maybe shoes....Anything that is small enough and doesn't take a lot of fancy supplies. Put your mind to work and see if you can cram your favorite mini making items in one of these cases. Pop it in your purse and you can take it anywhere.
See you tomorrow.
