Craft Keeper

This is made from a placemat, ribbons and zip-loc bags.  I think it is so cute.

A friend of mine showed me one she found and she was planning on using it for quilting supplies.  I thought I could use it for crafting supplies.

I started thinking about all the uses for this.  You could use it for traveling (toothpaste, lotions, etc. - if spilled wouldn't get all over your clothes).

You could use it for jewelry (to organize and/or travel).

What kinds of uses can you come up with?

Crochet Dishcloth set

Here is a set of 3 dishcloths (orange trimmed in white, aqua, trimmed in white and an aqua, orange and white striped one).  I topped them off with an aqua flower and used an orange chain stitch to tie them together, so I can give them as a gift.  I loved the colors, it reminds me of a warm summer day.

Like yesterday's post, I got my color inspiration from somewhere else (a summer dress I had a few years ago, not sure where that dress went to - I really liked it).

Where do you get your creative inspiration?

Where do you get the inspiration for your projects? Whether it is sewing, knitting/crochet, etc. I look around at what pleases me and go from there.

Here is a granny square that I crocheted. The colors are white, brown aqua and burgandy/dark red (yes, I know it looks bright red, but trust me - it is not - don't know if it was the camera or the computer).

I got my inspiration from my favorite tote bag.  It has the same color scheme.

Here they are together.

The colors may not be an exact match (fabric and yarn do not always match), but I like the color scheme anyway.

So where do you get your inspiration?
