We are having a clear out at home, and DH has found a whole carrier bag full of Trollbeads pouches- the full extent of my addiction is no longer a secret!
Now I'm left with deciding what to do with them. There are all sots of pouches collected over 5 years.

Any suggestions? It seems a shame just to throw them away scratch

I am happy to take them off your hands if no-one else has any more imaginative suggestions...useful packaging for sales Smile

Maybe you could make „bundles“ (throwing together a bunch), take pictures and offer them for shipping costs here on BT?

Can you sew? I have a similar sack full of them and thought that they would make an awesome quilt. Ok, so I don't have enough for a quilt--perhaps a pillow. I cannot sew or this project would have been completed already.

I like the sound of this. Did you have a bead in each pouch (instead of chocolate)? Smile

They could also be sewn into a scarf, belt, or a larger tote or drawstring bag...or you could sew them randomly onto a shirt, hoodie, denim jacket or jeans, at different angles like patchwork:)

I always took my extra pouches back to my dealer for her to reuse.

I've stopped taking the bags, for this very reason. I have nightmares about a trollbead intervention.

I don't take them anymore either. I always have an empty bag in my purse to use or it goes right on a bracelet.

I really like the idea of a quilt, not that I have anywhere near the time to do it. I usually give them away and I don't usually get them when I purchase beads. The small white ones are ugly and I toss. I like the different ones from different countries and keep them. I have one from world tour south africa and I am wild about it and keep my south africa beads in it when they are not on a bracelet.

I don't take the pouches when I buy in person, but I still end up with one or two from on line purchases Wink

I do not take the bags anymore either.  It was the strangest thing.  They were multiplying in the dresser drawer.  So I cleaned out the infestation, took them back to the LD.  The pillow sounds like a cute idea, if I liked to sew Shocked
