Being a regular admirer of other bloggers' amazing craft projects I constantly vow to make beautiful things of my own. I am FULL of ideas, almost all of which never come to fruition. I especially love the idea of sewing gorgeous things to use as decor in my boys' room, all of which would involve my own needlework as I don't even own a sewing machine (though I have great hopes of coming across a beautiful green vintage one in working order at an Op shop or market someday).
Browsing on eBay I have come across many very beautiful vintage sewing boxes and especially love the wooden concertina style. They regularly sell upwards of $60 and I grudgingly decided that somebody who sews/crafts as seldomly as myself has no business owning such an item.
That was why I was so excited when I came across this mini-version at a recent market for $5!!!
Isn't it gorgeous? The box itself measures 27 cm wide by 13 cm deep by 12 cm high, the perfect size for somebody with limited supplies such as myself.
I love the little swirl carved detail.
Speaking of sewing, you may remember me waxing lyrical back in January about making H some bunting out of vintage style materials I had gathered. Well, 7 months later and I have the sum total of 10 triangles sewn so far. At this rate of production I reckon I can churn out a project per year... Impressive!
