Now, I don't sew. I can sew a button on, maybe sew a rip in a pinch, but I am not one to sew much of anything. Therefore, the basket of buttons is rarely used. However, when I need thread and a needle, I dig...and dig...and dig some more. Just not cutting it!
Here is the alleged sewing basket...
To start, I dumped the contents onto a table.
Scary, huh!:) I took all the buttons out of their little packets or plastic baggies and sorted them by color.
I bought this box in the tool and outdoors section of Walmart.
Then I gave each color of buttons their own little home. I used the other half for safety pins...woah, the amount of safety pins I have for some reason. I also put thread and elastic on the other side.
It all fits so nicely. I need to make a pretty label for the top, I just haven't decided how I want to make it yet (this is the time I want one of those fancy cutters to make words:).
And just because he's adorable...this was my buddy at my feet the whole time. He was keeping me company:) He is wedged between the couch and the table I was working on.
