Hi ... This is my sewing basket with all the bits and pieces for the current projects I am working on! The top is embroidered with a garden scene with a little embroidered pincushion affixed and the inside is full of threads, silk ribbon, beads and braids that I am using to create my projects for classes for the beginning of this year - a bit messy I know! However, when these projects are finished I roll all the cottons and ribbons up and put them away and then get out another lot of different colours and make a bit of a mess while creating the next few projects! It works for me! What does your sewing basket look like?
