Call me crazy, but I just love this box. I've been searching for a sewing basket or box to store supplies in for the new house (aka the retirement house). I had this idea in my head of what I wanted but wasn't having much luck. The new ones at the fabric store just weren't cutting it. Then I found this one on eBay to bid on and I won. Whooo hooooooo!
This one is PERFECT!
I had one of these when I was in junior high but it was avocado green. Somewhere along the way I happily gave it up. It was pretty ugly. Any other color and I probably would have kept it because it was great storage.
Needless to say, this time around I was looking for any color but green. Or harvest gold. I want something sweet and pretty. This one is powder blue with a nice textured finish on the exterior. LOVE it!
|Plenty of organized storage for thread, bobbins, scissors, pins & needles/|
I plan to sew just as much there as I do here, maybe even more. It is important to me to get this filled up with everything I will need to make whatever strikes my fancy. I envision making curtains, quilts, potholders and all kinds of wonderful things.
Having it now I will have plenty of time to collect sewing supplies and notions to fill it up. And of course I have to be able to store everything in a neat and organized way (feedind my OSD/anal retentiveness) which I will totally be able to do this with this one.
Did I mention it is PERFECT?!
Yay, yay, yay! Another fun project to work on. So exciting! J
