A friend and I went on a road trip yesterday to the nearest JoAnne's and hit Target while we were in the neighborhood. We weren't 20 feet inside the store when I noticed a display of picnic/cook-out items including this wire thing... the likes of which I've not seen before.
However, the blue caddy is much smaller and the heavy scissors fall out when I bump the table... the back section (for napkins) is really too small for the templates I've accumulated. The blue caddy has almost slid off the cutting table when I accidentally nudged it. I clearly need a larger/ heavier one, yes?
The front and back sections, which are for napkins and plates, did not have the wire mesh bottoms like the utensil sections but I cut some white cardboard to fit.... and now, small stuff won't fall through.
I didn't have any small plastic "glasses".... the small ones that I used with my kids when they were learning to hold and drink from a glass for the first time... that would fit in the napkin section to use as "pencil holders" but I did find two toilet paper rolls ready to go to the recycle bin.
I covered those with one of those nice bags you get at gift shops sometimes that are printed with old-fashioned florals.
The tubes are a bit small so I will look for small plastic "glasses" to take their place since they will be heavier and less likely to move around/tip over.
It was fun loading up my new cutting table caddy... so much room! Stuff fits! Stuff doesn't fall out! Wooo hooo!
There's even a bit of room for a few more templates.... which is a good thing because there are a couple under piles of fabric on the cutting table that I need to find...
