So, a friend brought me a big box of sewing supplies from an old woman, who gave up sewing and moved into a smaller flat.
There was so much cool stuff in there and most of it I know where to use or how.
 I have no ideas what to do with:

-several meters of broad (60mm or 2,4 inch) elastic band in white and additional a huge supply of thinner elastic bandsI will never ever use up in my normal sewing.

- many  bobbins of elastic thread in many different colors (I dont know at all what to do with those other than making bracelets)

- tons of darning cotton thread in all colors (extra big amounts of blacks,greys and browns), I dont darn anything

So if you have any knowledge on the usage or cool ideas how to use those stuff, please tell me.
Meanwhile just looking at my supply box ( I went and bought a huge tool box immediatly after getting those stuff) makes me feel really good, whether I know how to use it or not, I have it !! Grin Grin

Well, at least for the thinner elastic - how about making some cute headbands/headscarfs? I recently went on a headband binge and made a ton of them. My camera batteries are dead right now, but here's a link to one option...
