So I went on a yard sale binge this summer looking for furniture for my apt.  Well I different find much furniture wise but I did make some good sewing finds.  One of them was a bag full of sewing notions and old sewing books.  Also mixed in there was this neat sewing kit, I liked the print on the outside.  The inside however was ehh.  Well I had some free time and I was sick of losing my embroidery needles (I am down to two,) so I ripped out the insides and made it a little cuter and more functional. 

Here's the outside.
Here's the original inside.

And here's the inside after messed with it.
There's a place for all my needles, embroidery scissors, and seam ripper, plus some othe slots for whatever.

Very cute and functional

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.
