workbox

where I keep my embroidery supplies and tools
A fellow parent at my son's school led the parent handwork group through making sewing boxes. We bought the boxes at AC Moore or Michael's, knocked out the horsey (thanks to Martha of naive knitting for that richly descriptive word) tapestry padded tops and made our own using 6 count cross stitch canvas, DMC Perle cotton, and our own designs.
Since I can't find a paddle that would fit into the box, I use short cuts of magnolia branches to keep my Perle cotton organized.

Comments:
Now I want to do this to my own sewing box, which I've never used consistently because of its generic appearance. And the twigs inside are perfect. Thanks for sharing these ideas!
