Raisin Box Make Over

Hello!

I have started sewing again - working on two small dolls - and I wanted to make a container to set on my table next to my machine to put all the little threads, pieces of material, etc. that one continually gathers when sewing.

I looked around to see what I could use and spied one of the empty raisin boxes I have been saving to use as possible projects for my blog. I make my own bread and raisin bread is my favorite so I always have these boxes at hand. Some have squared corners and some have the rounded corners - as in the one I used.

So here is my new small 'table waste basket' I guess you could call it. It works great! :<)




Thanks for stopping by today!

Wishing you a great week!
