A few weeks ago, I got a call at work from my aunt. She was calling in an emergency...a thrifting emergency! Yes, there is such a thing. She found herself staring at multiple vintage sewing boxes and wanted to know if I wanted one. At a whopping $6.50, how could I say no?
The design is a simple one, but it's perfect for me! I oiled the wood and cut out some cute papers to line the bottom of each section. The result makes me smile each and every time I open it.
There's no photo to prove it, but trust me, the box is now crammed full of lots of little sewing bits and bobs. I love how I can cart it from room to room as I make my way through the stages of a project. At each point, the box holds all the tools I need to cut out, mark, clip, pin, and measure whatever I happen to be working on.
The only items I have left floating around on my shelves are dozens of spools of thread which are driving me CRAZY...perhaps Santa will bring me a wooden thread rack for Christmas?
