This past week we went to New Mexico for vacation. A said that she wanted to sew something for Nee Nee while we were on vacation. Nate was not as excited about the idea as I was. He was concerned that we would bring too much STUFF! It was a challenge, and we were ready to accept it. We managed to pack everything in one container (except the sewing machine since that had to be on it's own).
Isn't it cute? I picked up this little pink make-up case a couple weeks ago in Georgetown while thrifting. I thought A would like to use it for something since it was pink, but instead I found a use for it. Wanna' know how I packed it?
|Here is everything in it's place.|
|The pattern on top of the fabric. Yes - I've used this patten and I got the parts back in the envelope. It's a miracle!|
|Fabric - a little washed out from the flash. I want to say there were 8 yards of fabric packed in that little box.|
|Stabilizer - might need that. Did, because the pattern didn't call for it, but I thought the purse needed it.|
|All the little things. Spool of white, spool of black, cone stand, couple pairs of scissors.|
|Stuff inside the plastic tub. Pins, bobbins, threaders, needles....|
|A better look a what was inside the plastic box. Who wants needles roaming around?|
Did you catch where my stitch card went?
|The mirror is a perfect spot!|
The little pink case was only an addition to my growing collection. I now have 4 cases. Each with it's own unique purpose. I might have to keep my eye out for a few more :)
|Little cream colored one that needs some love.|
|I actually used it as a make-up case for A's dance recital. It was perfect!|
|My blue beauties :)|
|This one holds all things inky - I LOVE ink!|
|This one holds markers, map pencils, Copics, a lighter, and my new favorite toy - Gamsol!|
