It was made for me by my boyfriend's mum who has always been very encouraging about my new found love of crafts! She was kind enough to let me and Jo stay with her whilst we were job hunting last year, and I came downstairs one morning to discover that she had made me this amazing sewing box to keep all my felt and cottons in. It was such a lovely surprise!
It's made from an old wine crate, with some wheels added to the bottom. The lining is made from some really cool bird fabric and pinned to the top of the box with drawing pins.
Here it is full of all my felt offcuts. It didn't take long to fill it back up again. Every time I cut out a Minifelt I always seem to end up with so many little odd shaped bits of felt leftover that I never know what to do with, so I'm storing them all up in my sewing box and am trying to come up with lots of little projects to use it all up on!
Where do you store your sewing stuff, do you have a sewing box too? Mine now lives down by the side of the sofa so that I can sew whilst watching telly!
