sewing box

Posted by Ingrid Gooyer

5 April, 2015 - ,

Had a lot of wooden spools just waiting to be used, so here it is…my vintage sewing box! 🙂
Made this box with the Vintage Summer Basics from Maja design.

For the box I used the 1899 and the 1946 sheets.

This box has a glass frame to see through so this box will be filled with some laces.

Just love these mini spools.
I gave them a coat with gesso.

The spools were decorated with the 1891 and the 1932 sheet.

A lovely scissor put in one of the spools.

Lots of room to be filled!

These old fabric buttons were found at a local flea market.

Some vintage lace bobbins for lacemaking.

Some flower ribbon, metal leaves, stick pins and flowers.

Papers used:

1891 – 1899 – 1932 – 1946

Enjoy your day!
