I am showing you different boxes and containers that we all might have in our homes right now. The pictures below are for sewing kits that you can keep in your purse or beside your favorite sewing chair. However, you can always use these ideas for other things in your life...not just for sewing. The kits can be used for make-up, little snack or craft kits for children or grandchildren, first aid kits etc. You name it...there's a place to put it.
The first container I found in Burger King. Picture this scenario...My hubby and I are sitting at the table in Burger King across from each other. He's eating his favorite chicken sandwich and I'm eating a salad (trying to shed those winter pounds before I have to put on those shorts that are mocking me in the drawer.) When I saw this container, which holds the salad on the bottom and all the fixings in the compartments on top, my first thought (out loud by the way) was...Oh my gosh this is too cute! (I really think I need trash therapy.) This is a sewing kit if I ever saw one. His words...please don't take that home. Too late.
How about a pencil box!!! They come in so many different sizes and colors.
This is an old tool or tackle box. It's small enough to carry around any where.
Another attempt to lose weight is Lean Cuisine...woo hoo frozen food containers. The possibilities are endless with these! Little compartments every where.
Perfect by your favorite chair.
How about a travel soap box for a kit in your purse. This would make a great first aid kit box as well as a sewing kit.
Eye glass cases...they're already in your purse anyway...why not add another one for a kit.
This is a lipstick case that my mother-in-law gave me. It was free with a purchase!!!
This is an old camera case...who knew!
This is a holder for memory sticks for your computer and a bonus key chain.
There are two little compartments on either side for the sticks.
How about thread on one side and scissors on the other. The middle fabric is perfect for needles and pins.
and this last one is any container that you find that can be transformed with fabric or pretty paper. The Tim Horton's mini donut box was a TTT post in the past, but how cute is that to carry around as a sewing kit. I'm working on that Chinese food take out box for a future post.
