Family Sewing Box

My oldest chickeepoo was old enough to do projects in 4H this year. It has been MANY a year since I have done any sewing so this is going to be a relearning experience for mom and who knows where all my supplies are?

So, since this is hopefully the start of a lifelong passion (and an excuse for me to tack on yet another hobby!) when Trinity said we needed a sewing box I decided I would make a family one that we could treasure.

I had some Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper that I had been hoarding for something special and here it was! The pattern designs on it made it perfect! I added some inspirational words, a cute little title (done with thickers that were inked over with a copic marker) and asst embellies and a great grunge latch that I inked and then scratched the heck out of and then painted. And for the base, it was just a box that I had sitting around, it was a nice size so I set it aside and saved it a few weeks back.

This is what I got:

I'm thinking I might add a couple of photo hangers on either side and make a cute ribbon handle for it too.


  1. This is so cute!! I love it Lissa!! Awesome job!

  2. I love these little crocheted flowers, and this style! Lovely!
