I have been on a "sort, organize, finish projects" bender ever since my book on Paris was published. I think I feel like I finally have the time to finish a few things before Summer gets in full swing and I am traveling again.
This productivity was also spurred on by things like a 3-day search for my seam ripper. I knew I had one and I couldn't find it anywhere. Which made me realize that since getting a sewing table with drawers (at least 10 years ago), I had given up having a proper sewing basket. And without a sewing basket, I had no real place to keep my notions. The harder I looked for the missing seam ripper, the more sewing items I found in various drawers, boxes and jars around the house.
I needed one spot for needles, thimbles and measuring tape and I found the perfect container! A snap together multi-level box. I've provided a link, but I have seen these for sale in the craft/organizer section of Target and large grocery super stores. It is clear, modern and can grow (by adding more snap-on levels) to accommodate as many notions as I can handle.
Do you need a modern sewing basket?
