First up - Re-Use.
I have a love affair with re-purposing and re-using things. The Single Set case shown here is a great example of using something you love in a new way so that you can enjoy it all over again. This was a custom order with some unique features added to fit her specific storage needs, but more importantly it uses fabrics that have a sentimental value to her. She says, "(this) one is my favorite because it is made from scraps and recycled fabric from some of my favorite scrub hats that I made for work. ( ok. It is a bit strange to have favorite hats from work, I suppose.)" I don't think it is strange at all! We spend more time at our jobs than we do at home*, so it makes complete sense to me.
Quilters have been creating beautiful works of art using scraps cut from articles of clothing for years, so if you are wondering if we can make a case or a bag out of a cherished cloth item, just ask!
*Except in my case since work is located in my home. This does make for a difficult juggling act trying to strike the right balance between work and home life...
