Kinda but not really...

Remember when I made wire cloches? They're still not embellished yet, but I turned one upside-down and made it into a hanging waste bin.

We bring home fewer plastic bags from the supermarket these days, although they're still necessary in the kitchen and for used kitty litter. In an effort to recycle the thin, plastic bags from the produce dept, a smaller bin was needed in my sewing room. I also wanted to get it up off the floor.

The hook was fashioned from 16 gauge wire, then sharp wire ends were wrapped with strips of cotton sheeting. Now it hangs from a drawer pull. Sewing room trash is not heavy, so weight isn't an issue.
