I've seen these boxes in just about every store. Cheap, cheap. I bought one in a consignment kitchen shop and the second design (further down in the post) in a discount store.
From Sandwich to Sewing!!
Just a little old sandwich box.
The box opens up with half being a large compartment and then the other half a covered section.
The cover closes over to keep little things contained.
Then closes over one more time.
Now onto the "Tool Time" version...
Hexagons and fabric in the sandwich section. It can hold other small sewing projects too...embroidery, cross stitch etc.
Thread, pins, needle case, scissors and other goodies in the individual compartments.
Close first cover to keep small things secure.
Then fold over the top!!
Easy to take with you any where you go.
Buy 2 and you'll have lunch and sewing on the go!!
This is the second box. It's for dipping snacks
It has a large cover for the whole box and a small cover for the dipping section.
Food version. Maybe veggies in the outer section and salad dressing in the center.
Sewing version. Pins in the center and sewing supplies on the outside.
The little dipping cover keeps pins all save and sound.
and the big cover keeps everything from spilling out.
Here's a extra tip... to keep your measuring tape from unrolling in your sewing kit, just secure it with a mini binder clip.
Look in your cupboard to see if you have a plastic storage box that can be used for your hobby...you never know!!
Hmmm...this could be a tough one. Use it for food or use it for sewing?
UPDATE...here is the picture of the sandwich box that was shared in the comment section. I asked Happier Than A Bird Quilts, if I could share it in this post. Visit her blog too...awesome quilts. Click HERE to visit. Thanks for letting me post it.
Hexie Heaven...LOVE IT!
Happy Tool Time,
