I have struggled for years to find the perfect sewing kit. Either they are too frilly or too graphic. Out of nowhere, there is this trend of mismatched sides and tops. I couldn't find one that really suited my Creative Cubby and style.
Until... one day, I wandered through the clearance section at Jo-Ann and stumbled upon this kit - marked down from $40 to $12.
I'm not a flowers girl. I'm just not. But I love plaid and this color scheme was perfect. So I snatched it up!
I found this wonderful cross stitch pattern on Everything Cross Stitch (find it here). I adjusted the aida size so it will fit on the top of the box. The pattern calls for 14ct. aida. I stitched it on 18 ct. aida.
Once I finished the designs, I simply did some basic folding and gluing to the top of the kit. I used fabric glue under the design and hot glue along the edges. Ta-da!!! My dream sewing kit!
