Giving Second Life to An Old Sewing Basket
A few months ago, I found a larger sewing basket at Goodwill that better suited the amount of sewing paraphernalia I have accumulated. But, I couldn't bring myself to part with my older, smaller sewing basket.
This smaller basket had been a gift many years ago from my oldest sister and I couldn't bear to give it away. So, for these last months it has sat empty on a shelf in our spare bedroom.
A couple of days ago, it dawned on me that this would be an excellent place to hold some of my costume jewelry that was sitting either loose on my dresser or in a couple of containers. This is much more organized, with room to see what I have.
There's even room on the lid to hang earrings, hair clips and tuck a bracelet in the pocket!
Have you found different ways to use a sewing basket other than for sewing supplies? Can you think of some new ways? Hope you'll take a moment to share.
Until Next Time,
