Pink Chalk Studio made these colorful fabric covered switch plates. I love her technique for sewing an extra piece of fabric in the middle to keep the fabric lines clean when you glue the switch plate to the fabric. A way to use up fabric scraps
Suitcase Knitting and Sewing Kit - this would be a perfect gift to make for a knitter/crocheter friend! Find an old, cute suitcase, coat/paint the inside as needed, add something to store craft tools, and maybe throw in some yarns too.
Magazine holders on bookshelves as yarn storage == brilliant! You'd feel like you had your own yarn shop at home. Down side? The significant other who doesn't appreciate your zeal for all things knit/crochet would know how much yarn you have :-/ oh well!
