    Lightbulb From Tutu ----> Ridgeline Organizer

    ok..so this started a couple of weeks ago.
    Walk into a Goodwill. Manage to find a Brother model 651 for $15.
    Dragged that thing home on the bus. (yeah, the looks on the passengers faces were priceless with this puke colored case and ugly tiny blue flowers that looked like it weighed 49 pounds! ha!)

    A few days after Chritsmas, I wander into the 99cent store.
    Of course, I am now looking at ALL items, not just in packaging mode (think Home Depot cookies 12 c IMUSA lid) but what can I made from some of the materials?

    Behold! There hangs one lonely little tutu. Pink. (ewwwww!) but whatever.
    Would make a great see through organizer.

    And this, ladies and gentleman, is what I came up with

    (Still deciding where to make a line to separate pockets.)

    Wow, it is pink! I guess it is good if you want to be the "talk" of the neighborhood

    It is good use of what you had available.

    I think its a wonderful idea. I already get strange looks when the ladies are waiting for me to move on from the fabric section at my local Goodwill and Salvation army, now ill just add to the looks with my search for tutu (pink not my color).
