Talk about, organization and one of the first lessons to learn is Categorization. Even if it is something as big and crucial as an Enterprise or something as small as your bedroom. In interior decoration, architects and designer lay emphasis on organizing furniture and decorative items to make the house warm and inviting. But there are certain small places like drawers or closets that get neglected. So how do you categorize these areas where the clutter-causing culprits are small contents such as accessories, cosmetic kit, grooming kit? Enters, small containers, baskets, organizers, boxes etc made solely to solve this purpose.
For me, instead of buying them off the rack, I opted to make a few with the scraps or yarn left from my old projects. Not only I fulfilled the purpose of the organization but I gave a brighter and neater look to the drawers and closet. I have used the same procedure as defined in 2-Yarn Basket or 2 Yarn Side-Table Basket. As per the area, I have increased/decreased the base of these boxes. My containers are used for hair accessories, electronic gadgets, ornaments, grooming item and other ignored items. All these organizers are made out of scraps that were kept in my Stash Basket.
Tip: To give a tighter stable balance, use one size less than recommended crochet hook.
Dimensions of the Basket:-
- Height: 2″-3″
- Diameter of the Basket: 5-8″
- The sizes can be changed based on your requirement. Choose the height and diameter of the mini baskets based on your drawer size.
- You can add pom-pom, tassels, charms, miniature idols, mini toys, amulets etc matching the color with the edging or the base color. Link to make pom-pom and tassels.
- You can attach flowers, beads, appliques or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather, fabric etc to make it more interesting.
Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
