You thought this post was just going to be a really awesome post about sewing kit organization, right? Well don’t worry, it is but it’s also so much more. I’ve collaborated with 40 other bloggers! Yes, 40 bloggers who all went thrift shopping and then sent each other thrift store finds. With a budget of $10 we set out to send each other some of the most lack luster items to see how we could bring the back to life. So have fun all week exploring the #swapitlikeitshot and make sure you are following us on Instagram as I share all the other bloggers projects.
Now on to the challenge… meet Allison from Two Thirty Five Designs she’s my super talented and hilarious friend from Texas. She sent me some thrift finds all the way from lone-star state. Out of the several she sent I choose to recover the most hideous of the 3. And here it is………………………………..
I think this is a plastic lunch box but honestly I don’t know. Whatever it is I knew it had great potential and could be used for so many things. I first thought I could use it as a camera case… that didn’t work because it was too small. Then I thought I could use it as a First Aid Kit but my husband just purchased a cute little first aid kit from Target. I had to keep thinking!!!
And then a little light bulb went off. I was in great need of a small sewing kit with all of the essentials. I use to have one but it’s been torn a part to the point I had no more essentials. In fact I couldn’t even find a needle the other day.
I love my new sewing kit and it was super easy to create. Even if you can’t find this exact “lunch box” you could remake any plastic container using this process.
Sewing Kit Organization
- Find a cheap plastic container
- Clean it really well
- Spray paint it
- Add details like a new strap and stickers
Isn’t the new strap so much more fun? It’s an old scarf that I cut in to 3 sections and braided. It was free and easy!
I think the details really helped give this little box a new look. I found some puffy letter stickers in gold and used them to label the box. The other gold details were created by simply using a gold paint pen.
Lastly, I filled the box with a pre-made sewing kit I purchased at Walgreens. It had everything I needed and it fit perfectly within the box. Want some more unique organizing ideas? Check out this awesome post on how to organize your jewelry.
