Have I mentioned that I got a new sewing machine? Yes, possibly I have. At the same time, Steve arrived home from a trip with a vintage lady’s travel case that was in great condition. Clearly my newly invigorated interest in sewing was going to require purchasing a bit of extra gear, so I decided to convert it into a sewing case.
Here’s the old case:
It really was in great condition – all it needed was a lick of paint and a touch up on some of the hardware. I also bought a small rack for my threads. Otherwise, its small elasticized bands and pockets made it perfect for storing things.
Previous to this, I thought I possibly had too many spools of thread, but now I can clearly see room for improvement in this collection. This case is already paying for itself! (It’s new math, folks. )
