Time to remedy that - establishing some simple guidelines: use stash on hand, self-design rather than follow a pattern, have a closure, don't go overboard with fussiness.
And this is the result - a covered felt roll. Machine cording (batik strips) on the outside in a loose pattern, inside lined with used 'Color Catcher' sheet from the laundry. Functional, not overtly beautiful or fussily crafted.
And the most important thing - its creation was pure fun!!!
