    T-shirt Yarn

    I use worn out sheets..........mercy, what a lot of yarn/thread!! LOL!! Had to buy new scissors and/or sharpen the old ones. @@A person might try braiding the strands, too.....then sewing them into coils like the old-timey rag rugs if you didn't own the larger hooks.....I've got sizes L, M, N, P and Q.

    Unusual Uses Ziploc Bags

    I loved the 'Easel-like, mix the paint' one; thanks!!

    Well, got duct tape? LOL!!

    I use a '''''zip bag within a zip bag within a bag within a zip bag''''' system; as many bags as needed. See-thru is seriously helpful, of course.My knitting bag needs something to house all the smaller tools of this trade; smaller parts first like stitch markers in it's own tiny zip bag, tip protectors in another, crochet hooks and yarn needles in another (yes, knitters need crochet hooks), knitting needles into another (as I always carry three or four pair leaving the big case to tote along as necessary). Yarn goes in another; the bags keep the yarn clean and can be threaded out of a corner using larger zips, like a gallon size which is partially open. If your bag isn't totally used or full, wrap the surplus around the item, knitting needles particularly, and band it off with rubb...

If your bag isn't totally used or full, wrap the surplus around the item, knitting needles particularly, and band it off with rubber bands. At the end of sorting, all go into the largest zip I've found being a 2 1/2 gallon and found online. I save all sorts, too of see-thru bags such as those used to hold conforters or quilts. Love them!!My tackle box has zips in them, too!! LOL!!Hubby uses them to hold chemicals and metal parts needing de-rusting, etc. We don't reuse these, of course.

    Walmart has the three small sizes in their craft section. So many come in one purchase that you'll never need to buy more! LOL!!
