I don't know if this would go here, or in the recycling board, but since it's mostly about yarn, I figured I'd put it here.

I HIGHLY doubt I'm the first one to think of this, but I couldn't find any post on it, but maybe I was just looking for the wrong thing?

I can't afford to buy a yarn bag to hold my yarn ball in. I also don't have space at school for my sewing machine to sew myself up one, so I figured out a new way to recycle old Clorox wipe containers...





They come in many different sizes, but again I am 100% sure I'm not the first one to think of this.

I usually sit on the couch when I am crochet and have my yarn sitting in my lap kinda like if you had a dog or cat in your lap....but usually when I pull the yarn it does some crazy hopping thing...I do like your storage holder....I think I am going to "borrow" your idea...plus I have some stickers that need to be put to good use!!!

Also, I forgot to say... I make my own center pull yarn balls...which works fine. I'm not sure if it works with regular yarn balls.

ohh this is a great idea! i love re-purposing/recycling!
you could even crochet a cute little cozy for it to make it look less dispenser-ish, haha!

to solve the weight issue, you could put a ziploc bag of rice or beans to keep it in place?

Or some of those glass pebbles you put in the bottom of vases. They're usually available at the cheap variety stores.

This is a cute idea. I'm wondering though...did you cut out the little "finger" thingeys from the center of the lid? If not, does the yarn get caught on them?

My MIL used to make a yarn holder by somehow cutting the bottom off a 2 liter plastic pop bottle, then putting the bottom piece back on somehow.
