My new primitive sewing box I made!!

Ok, picture heavy!!...This is my new sewing box that I have sitting next to my chair...When I'm not x-stitching, I just close it up and everything stays neat, organized, and hid away!!!...I also have one that sits under it that has my linens and evenweaves in it for easy access when I need fabric fast...I should have taken a picture...But these pictures show the inside and my contents...My boxes are fabric lined and hold my needles, rusty safety pins, and scissors....And then I lay my pinkeep on top...I love the organization, and I love the primitive look when I have it open and all the contents are showing....So what do you think???...Organization is a good thing!!!!...I'm off to add some to my selling blog for sale...So if interested then go check them out...Several limited colors available~~hugs, Jen

Wonderful box. I started one for a friend, but never got around to finishing it, maybe this year.

What a wonderful idea! I always have my stitching stuff strung out. I wonder if that box would help me keep it organized! Hmmmm! I do love it.

Oh so neat Jen. Every stitcher needs one of those prim-perfect organizers! I have my "stuff" pretty neat until I get up to do something and then I think I have it scattered everywhere!! Wish we lived closer so we could stitch together. Maybe one day....

That is so great! And if you have to stop what you are doing for a minute or two........no problem, you don't have to do a mad scramble to clear up anything......... everything looks so quaint just as it is.

Hi Denise!..I made it myself...

Love this idea. I have a low firkin with a cover which works perfectly and looks great but your idea for the small boxes INSIDE is just the ticket!
