Sewing Box

I found myself doing more hand sewing while creating hair bows.  I thought it would be great to have a little box to bring around with me and carry my supplies.  I looked at sewing boxes and they all seemed to be bigger than what I wanted.  I found a cute little box at Hobby Lobby, but it didn't seem finished on the inside.  The price was right, so I bought it and wondered about lining it.  I took some of my favorite fabric leftover from a sling and cut some cardboard for the lid, glued the fabric on and glued it to the lid. I thought I'd make a few holders for my scissors and also my stitch ripper.  I sewed elastic in and then I just tucked down the raw edge and quickly glued it in around the top edge.

Thinking ahead to Christmas, I made one for my daughter too and accessorized the box with pink scissors, cute pins, and a custom matching pin cushion.
