when I was really into bookbinding/box making (I still love you, book arts!) I made this little sewing kit. It's a clamshell style box, which is covered in Liberty cotton bookcloth I made, using wheatpaste and all that.
An amazing teacher taught this craft class in Eugene, OR. and she designed this. The cool thing is that everything fits so snug. The tape measure is stuck on with velcro and the little pockets are so fun.
And the card with all the attached sewing goodies comes out! You can see my horribly tarnished needlecase. I miss taking classes! I need to take another one soon-
