The Quilters Sewing Box Revisited

The quilting girls are coming over this week to make a sewing box so I needed to have a box tweaked and ready to go.


First I checked that a pair of scissors would fit into the box. 


 I then covered the inside opened lid in a batting, which meant when you needed to be on the move with your sewing box your current piecing could lie in here ready for next time.


The pin cushion is removable and the magnetic box is great for storing your needles.
The lidded box is perfect for thimbles and other tiny items.


Half of the lid folds to reveal a cutting mat


The lid folds lies on the box and is secured closed with the strap that domes down onto the box.


I am so happy with my new Guillotine as it makes life so much easier when trying to cut that thick card.

Thanks for the visit

  5. Love this box and it's great grab-n-go nature. Now there's no excuse not to be ready to stitch with friends. What is it about boxes that draw us in so closely? They are just wonderful, no matter what they are used for.

  10. Hi Heather, I've found your blog via the KFC facebook page. I love your boxes! I would love to make one once you have your kits ready. Have you also thought about putting a class up on Craftsy for those who are too far away to make buying a kit possible?
