While sewing I generate lots of trimmed edges, cut threads and general fluff and I need a handy receptacle to keep them off the floor. I have a cloth bag that sits under my serger to catch the edges but otherwise I've been using a basket lined with a plastic bag. It sits on the floor and tends to retreat deep under my sewing table where it is inaccessible and this has been bugging me. Also, it's stationary and I move around, clipping threads and trimming seams here and there.
I saw this item at Lee Valley tools. It's a plastic bucket that slips into a neoprene sleeve which fastens to a belt with clips of some kind. It's supposed to be used in the garden.
But I balked at the price ($31.50).
Today I was at the dollar store and I spotted this cute plastic basket for a tiny bike. (Barbie!)
I threaded a thin belt through the plastic strips that are supposed to attach it to handlebars.
It also came with streamers, but I can't quite figure out how to attach them.
