While you may be spending some time with a book or a movie that is similarly named, you also might want to spend some time with this. You might like the other side better. On some days... I know I would. Kidding, Bill. (Who I know reads this blog)
This arrived on my porch yesterday. It's a new lunch box available from Moda Home. Or is it?
I have an older model that you might have seen on this blog last year. I made a little adaptation and it is my traveling sewing kit. What you need is a few things I know you have around the house..... a small piece of fabric, cardboard, scraps of quilt batting, and tape. What you might not have is this.Some extra strong double-sided tape. It's pretty simple (believe me, it has to be. I did this all by myself)What you see here is a piece of cardboard approximately 10 1/2" x 6" on top of 3 layers of wool batting. If you have wool, use it here. As a matter of fact, save all of your wool batting scraps as it is wonderful to use to stuff pillows, pincushions, and such. On the bottom is a scrap of lovely Moda fabric about 2" larger all the way around. The batting is a bit larger than the cardboard.
Now, just pull the fabric taut and tape on the back. I used duct tape. Here it is from the back. Not very pretty at this point. Next, I put on 4 strips of the double sided tape.Once the red paper is peeled off the double-sided tape, just put that baby up on the lid of your lunch box. Fill with all your sewing tools and you are good to go. Now, I'm getting to the really good part. In honor of this blog's 300th post. (Yes, we have rambled on here about rugs, quilts, movie reviews, puppies, and lame pictures of groceries for 300 posts.) We would like to reward you for your patience. Make a comment to this post and you could be the winner of this sewing kit. Your kit will be filled with some of those goodies shown. It will also be filled with other goodies you don't see. We'll pick three winners. One gets the goody stuffed sewing kit and the two others - well, just goodies. Enter by midnight, Sunday August 1st. Good luck.
In the meantime, I am planning more posts on hand quilting tools and techniques. Thanks for all the great questions.
