What about something that could attach/hang off the edge of the table to put scraps/trash in?  A weighted...thing...with a bag hanging from it to dangle off the edge of a table...I know I saw this at joann's it was like a bag of sand (pin cushion?) that had a bag attached to it to hold thread pieces and trimming

This would be awesome to take somewhere a trash can wasn't handy (like at work...where i craft  Wink ...hint, hint future partner)



i love this idea! i always have a big pile of scraps and thread ends when i'm finished sewing!

Oh, I'm dying here   Cry  This swap sounds like so much fun but I don't finish my 'one month probation' until two days after the sign up ends....so, I'll just have to be patient.  I knew I should not have looked at the swaps until I could join.  I'm going to look forward to seeing pictures what others have made and hope another swap like this comes up again sometime.

A couple of more ideas:

An organized three binder with little tabs to different crafts (i.e. crochet patterns, knitting patterns, different ideas for wet felting, etc.) and then supply that person with a collection of patterns or maybe a quick reference guide to certain techniques that when you don't do them everyday you forget...like ssk in knitting.  I always forget that.

Another one:  a CD with songs referencing to that person's craft...does songs with the word "knit" exist???  he. ha.  I bet there are a TON of songs with the word NEEDLE in them.
