Y'know, I have an old violin case. It's not valuable, and too beat up and shabby to use for its original purpose. I bet it would corral my jewelry supplies nicely...hmm..
I like both the ones you did. Practical and cute storage, and also portable. Nice!

That flute case is brilliant! I keep my knitting needles in a wine gift box thingy I got on clearance after Christmas and it works, but not as good as your flute case!

Great ideas and lovely execution. When I first started buying stuff on Ebay, years ago, I bought some vintage picnic baskets and "train cases". I use one of the picnic baskets as my sewing basket. With your post inspiring me - I will move the embroidery mess into the other one! Thanks.

So great what a great idea I will definitely be on the lookout for something for my paintbrushes now !

Love art and all things Dia de los Muertos. I'm obsessed with Frida, Sugar Skulls, La Catrina. I am the owner and creator of ArteSultana, Mixed Media Mexican Inspired Art. I can be found online or at craft shows =)

The flute case is such a good idea. I literally gasped. And as a hot glue gun addict, I adore the fabric.
msg me if you're interested in a private swap! ^_^

what an excellent idea!!! I never find bins/cases long enough for my knitting needles to store them in (I dont sew too well and knitting needle cases are crazy expensive for the good ones...) but this is perfect and so sturdy!!! Cheesy I'm going to be stalking the thriftstores for my own flute case now hehe

Trying to get back into the swing of things. Trying to move forward and make big changes in my life come join me on my journey if you like!
