I hope it's okay that this is in this folder - no others seemed to really fit.  Anyway, I had this old make-up box - caboodles from about 13 years ago.  As I'm beginning to sew more, I am in need of a sewing box and decided to revamp this one with images of 1950s sewing patterns.  There were a couple of times in the midst of doing it where I thought it was going to look like crap, but I think it turned out okay.  One of the pics makes it look like it's wrinkly, but it really isn't.  

Here's the link:  http://picasaweb.google.com/katietr/SewingBox

Thanks for looking!

Wow that's really neat. I'm a beginner at sewing and just have a little wipe box to put stuff in.  Undecided

OOooh! How pretty! I miss caboodles. I turned mine into a tacklebox... Now I wish I had a sewing kit like that.

Know why chicken coops have 2 doors?

If they had 4 doors they'd be chicken sedans.

Man!  Who would have thought I would be sitting around one Sunday trying to figure out what I did with my caboodle???  Huh  This is a fantastic idea.  Great job. 

I think that it is even great for taking your crafty things along to hang out with friends. 

Now my only question is, how to go about finding a caboodle?

Ahh.  I actually still use my caboodle, but now I want to spruce it up.  How'd you do this?  mod-podge?

Thanks guys!
I bet you could find caboodles type containers at garage sales.

As for the patterns, I used something like mod podge - Aleene's Instant Decoupage.  I thought it worked really well. 

I'll try to remember to take a pic with my stuff inside.

I now truly wish I had not given my old caboodle to the (at the time) boyperson because that is a great idea. It's really cute!
I think I'm gonna have to go on a caboodle hunt! See if anyone I know has them from back then, although I may try it withthe train case style ones
