In the spirit of “What’s in Your Bag” I ask you, “What’s in Your Sewing Basket?”
My current sewing ‘basket’ started as a basic sewing kit from IKEA that was purchased in a college readying spree.
While most of the original contents have moved on, I still use the plastic box to keep all my supplies in one place.
My sewing box contains:
-1 pair of Martha Stewart Craft scissors given to me by my mom. These are my go to fabric scissors.
-1 pair of Honey Bee scissors also given to me by mom
-1 opened package of class 15J bobbins. These don’t fit in my machine. I bought them almost a year ago because I thought they would and they have been in my sewing box ever since.
-1 box of Dirtz yellow topped quilting pins. I bought these after I was tired of the pins that came with the IKEA sewing kit bending and never being long enough. I love them and their plastic box.
-4 left over IKEA pins
-2 packages of assorted needles
-1 giant embroidery needle
-6 needles fallen out of their package
-7 medium-sized safety pins
-3 large safety pins
-1 package large opening clasps (for wristlets)
-1 white marking pencil
-1 .005 Micron Pigma pen
-1 fine tip air erasable marking pen in purple
-1 fine point Uni-ball pen in blue
-1 Prismacolor pencil in 90% warm gray
-1 Fiskars rotary cutter
-Red embroidery floss #321
-1 package of 3 black buttons. I don’t remember why I bought them.
-1 package of 3 gray buttons. I can’t remember why I bought these either.
-1 tiny bag full of beads from a fancy dress
-1 seam ripper
-1 spool Sulky bobbin thread in black
-1 package of snaps unopened
-1 miscellaneous metal piece, it may be for grommets
-1 list of projects to make and to write about
-1 X-acto knife
-6 bobbins threaded in white, black, gray, orange, red, and white again
-1 zipper foot
-1 miscellaneous clasp
-1 unidentifiable black plastic piece
-2 broken sewing machine needles
-2 in tact sewing machine needles
-1 small scrap of blue and black stripped fabric
Whew! I had no idea that little box could hold so much. So now I ask you, “What’s in your sewing basket?” Let me know. You blog it and I’ll add a link in my sidebar. Good? Good.
