Postscript: Sewing Kit

Polly uses a lunchbox too for her tool box too. Hers is an antique one. This is what it looks like inside. Rug hooking is handwork too, it's just that her tools are just a bit different.
Here's what she has to say about them: "Here is mine, an antique of course. They were made to encourage people to buy the biscuits that were inside at turn of century (why don't they do that now???) As I do not sew, I just need wool, scissors and my hook - and my business cards. I carry a sample of our ticking and twill tape to show rug hookers how they can bind rugs with these great products."

So there you have it.....great minds think alike.

It has been fun hearing all about your sewing kits and "pending" sewing kits.

Love that antique picnic basket. I will have to be on the look out for something similar. Also like how you used the twill tape for the scissors holder in the post before. I have some of your twill tape and now I know what I am going to do with mine. Thanks a bunch.

Ladies the sewing boxes are lovely, I was wondering do they allow these inside an airplane ?
Thank You

The lunchbox won't be a problem on an airplane. What you put in it could be. I always put mine in my checked baggage. I do sometimes bring sewing tools on board. There are airline approved scissors and I have had luck getting needles through security. I always show them and only once was I told they couldn't get through. Don't take anything through security that you can't live without - because it might be taken from you. Good luck.
