Sewing Box

Our internet connection has been playing up again and is off more than it is on. Hence the lack of posting.


I found this book in the library and just had to try some of the boxes.



I am not very good with the glue gun and didn't have the perle cotton to go over the plastic mesh so the lid is a bit of a disaster.



Tomorrow I will try to get the cotton and maybe make a new lid. I also need to make the thimble box for the middle. There are a couple of other boxes in the book that I want to try but my new quilt is calling me too.

How Sweet! My daughter made me one of these boxes, ages ago. I must take a pic of it, & post it. She also made one for my mother, who just loved it, & kept it in her lounge. Daughter has more patience than I do, though I had to learn it for the painting of my dolls faces!

I agree! Cute box. I, too, had one given to me years ago by a quilting friend. She put a stuffed elephant on the lid! It's great.

What a neat project! They'd make good Christmas gift boxes. :)

Fab box - looks very complicated to make!

Yikes! I love it how you just jumped right in and made it Joyce :) It's great. But I think it might actually send me round the twist!!

Oooh! Looks like fun...and a nice change. One could really make some contemporary ones with hand dyeds and beads and fibers and.... Enjoy, Joyce!
