Fabric Covered Paper Clip Box

     "Necessity is the mother of invention."  Not a statement, it seems, that is often used these days of the generation that "just goes and buys another."  However, I've used it often and a lot.  When I need something, I hunt for something in my house I can use or I "invent" it.  When you can use a sewing machine, you can do that a lot. 
       I was tired of separating the paper clips from my pins.  Just slowed me down.  I didn't like having to open the paper clip box to get a clip.  Just slowed me down.  I couldn't find a container I already had that was small enough. Didn't want it to take up a lot of space, AND I didn't want to have to buy something.  So, as I was holding the paper clip box, the idea popped into my head!

  1. You've proven that old adage with this project! So much prettier than using the plain ol' cardboard box.
