Ohhh! There are loads of repurposed t-shirt projects that I've seen and admired. Gosh knows I have ton of old shirts in drawers. Also, I've always wanted to try sweater felting and Mr Lime has a few old wooly sweaters hiding in the bottom drawers that he wouldn't miss Smiley.

Hmmm, I also have a junk drawer in the kitchen that's filled with matchboxes, old electrical crap, tape and all kinds of wacky stuff. There might be some possibilities in there.

OHHHH our bar/poker table has tons of old cards and chips and dice and board game pieces.

Too many ideas!!!

In one of my junk drawers I have some old washers, mismatching screws, a few orphan playing cards, some dice, a couple cloth napkins that I lost the matches to, binder clips, paint brushes, foam brushes, notepads. There's all kinds of stuff I can do with any of this! Cheesy  I mean, that's just the one junk drawer (have a couple more junk drawers), not even looking in the craft rooms' messy drawers or clothing junk drawers.

My kitchen junk drawer is like a D&D bag of holding.  It has way more stuff in there than you'd think would fit!  I wonder if we've got odd pieces of silverware that could be repurposed.  Hmmmm....

I've got a nice deep junk drawer that I'm sure will yield up some wonderful item, but I can't help but wish I could look for supplies at my sister's house. She has a "Junk Drawer" and "JD, Jr." Who knows what I could find there?  Cheesy

We moved a bit ago, so what would be in my drawers *blushing slightly* is still in boxes.  BUT I finaly remembered that I have some drawers that have not been emptied.  I am sure I can find something in one of them Grin  Now I just have to remember to take a pic of the drawer...

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

I have lots of underbed storage boxes, can I root through those as well as my drawers for craftster inspiration?

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Oh how I wish my bathroom had drawers. I'm living with my mom right now so kitchen drawers are off limits to me, often times even when it comes to cooking   Cry and I don't even have a dresser in my tiny room.

But..........

I have a sister with a 3 bedroom house all to herself and I know for a fact that she's just bought a ton of those 3 drawer organizers and she never throws anything away, so I'll have to start rumaging next time I'm over there and see if inspiration strikes.

Nope!  Stick to drawer rummaging for this challenge.

Maybe if you offered to help her sort and clean some of the drawers for spring, she'd throw you some of the extra bits and bobs.  Or just steal a fork. Grin*

Maybe there is something in a bathroom drawer you could revamp?  Unused comb, cotton balls, empty lotion container?

Oh!  Just take a photo of your item before and after.  You don't need to photograph the drawer, unless you want to, of course. Smiley

Haha, yeah there's no way I'm helping her clean that place, last time I saw that spare room it was bordering on hoarder status lol. But she knows I do all kinds of crazy stuff in swaps and whatnot so if I just grab something and go "I'm taking this......its a for a Craftster thing" I'm sure she'll just roll her eyes and say ok  Grin
