This probably goes here?  I've been meaning to make something like this for ages, to sit near when I'm sewing and hold odd scrappy thread ends.





Literally threw it together just now with some of the first fabric I grabbed hold of.  If I made another, I'd add a bit of stabiliser or similar to firm it up; in this case I made do with fairly dense quilting.

I love it! The fabrics are beautiful and the stitching looks really great. It would need to be 10 times the size for the amount of string I save, ha ha, but how perfect as a ring/coin dish by the bed or something like that.

Thank you! <3  Yes, if I had a dressing table area (that wasn't totally covered in crap, lol) or space on my bedside table then I'd definitely make another for trinket-y things.  Smiley  I'm already thinking I might make a second so's I can have one by my sewing machine and one by my chair in the sitting room.

I completely agree!  The black and white spilling out onto the cheerful outer shell. Great fabric selection.

I save all my mini thread bits - sewing, embroidery, yarny pieces - so this is such a fun little container.  Sweet!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
