Doesn't everyone keep their plastic ziploc bags in the sewing/craft room?
I was at the tail end of cleaning up my accumulation of patterns and such when I had an epiphany. I was about to make my fourth trip downstairs to get another ziploc bag to hold bits and pieces of cut patterns, directions, or fabric when I decided a box of bags should be IN the sewing room.
Now, there's only one box of these bags in the house which was in the kitchen where other people keep them. However, I only occasionally use them there to store leftovers. For that I can just say, "Honey, run upstairs and get me a ziploc bag, will ya." To the inevitable whining that will ensue about keeping the bags where normal people do, I intend to respond with, "I get enough exercise shopping for fabric and running it through the machine. What are you trying to do kill me? Isn't there some sport on television that you should be watching when we're finished cleaning up here?" The sports line is what will do it. This man has been known to watch curling even before Stephen Colbert made it hip--well, as hip as curling can be.

I keep a box in the kitchen AND one in my sewing room, then everyone's happy... LOL!!!ReplyDelete
I keep my box in the kitchen AND my sewing room.....even though they are only 10 feet apart :)ReplyDelete
I keep them in both places too --- several sizes in each room! We can't get the jumbo sized zipper bags here in Canada so I buy 'em in the States, and keep them in the sewing room. They're perfect to use to store large project "kits" like quilt blocks or collections of fabric for future projects :) The smaller (regular large size) bags are great for all the smaller projects - I usually have a dozen or more projects "kitted" ready to work on, and I use them over and over!ReplyDelete
Ha! When I finally finished my craftroom and got to unpack my stuff I hadn't seen since we moved (10 years ago!!!) I was stunned at the amount of ziploc bags I had my crafting stuff in! Now I have those clear plastic "shoeboxes", but there's stuff in plastic bags in them!! Thanks for visiting my blog, making me laugh early in the morning and I'm your newest follower!ReplyDelete
Zip lock baggies are my favorite!! I use them in every room!!! Especially my craft room! **Thanks so much for adding me to your RSS feed!!! So very excited!!! :-)ReplyDelete
p.s. I LOVE to buy zip lock baggies at the Dollar Tree because they always have seasonal print ones - ie: snowmen, snowflakes, even hearts for V-Day!!! :-) I like pretty bags!! :-)ReplyDelete
