Hello,Just order new covers for my leather sofa and love seat.They always come in plastic zip bags,I fell in love with these bags,They work wonderful,in keeping scraps from last project.They even have a front pocket to sign a name or leave yourself a note?The bags hold alot and I some times hang them up,with a pant hanger?What ever you do please do not throw these bags out.When ordering a new set of sheets,comforter,or a throw blanket your almost certain you receive it in one of my favorite bags!

I also reuse those bags especially the ones that bed sheets come in!  But I love getting those plastic boxes. I got a fabulous deal at Costco.  They don't have handles, but I live that they close and nothing spills!

I love the bed sheet and curtain ones. They have that cool inner pocket and zip up. I place my instructions and pattern with a picture of it.  I only buy things now for the case

yes, I like those cases too.  I also buy blue bunny brand ice cream for their plastic containers.

I use coffee cans for scraps. You can't see into them, but they are great for keeping the small scraps out of the stash, where they can mislead you into thinking you have more of that fabric than you do. I plan to sort the small scraps into different sizes, putting all one size into it's own coffee can and labeling the outside, but that's for a day when I don't have more quilts than I have time to make them!

It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!
