EAT - SLEEP - SEW

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.

Laurie & Polly

Sandra Henderson said...

I came to ask you a question, so I'll ask it as my entry to win this wonderful prize!!!!! :)

WHY does a quilt get heavier and heavier, the more you quilt it? I've posed this question and received a deluge of answers, but mostly they were from a misunderstanding of what I meant. (I think sometimes I speak a different language, but that's another story...)

While, I've not put all materials I'd use in a quilt on a scale before quilting, it seems to me that you are only adding thread as you go. Yet, the quilt keeps getting heavier and heavier. Not that I mind, mind you.

Or, is this just an illusion? Perhaps it's from having the quilt on your lap for SOOOOOO long that it just feels like it's getting heavier. Hope you know what I'm asking. I shall pose this to my own audience soon. I have to get to the bottom of this.... lol

What a great idea ! Perfect for a newlywed or a kid going off to college or just to have handy when you need to sew on a button or repair a hem .

mj said...

Count me in.. I love the tin!!!
Thanks for letting me be a part of your giveaway.

Minick and Simpson said...

Sandra,

Hmmmm. I know what you mean about the weight of the quilt. Could it be that the added weight of the thread compounded with the fact that the quilt now takes up less space (batting is now compressed where it is stitched). Any physicists out there? I know at my house there is also the added weight of the cat and dog hair.

Helen said...

Thanks for the tutorial. When I saw your first post about your sewing kit I felt inspired to make one, but so far haven't. The new Moda lunch box makes an adorable sewing kit too (although I did see a very cute R2D2 lunch box that would work too). Of course, it would be much more fun to win your kit, especially with all the goodies. Congratulations on your 300th post!

Cathi said...

What a great idea to make the large pincushion for the inside of the lid!

Oh the back (or front) of that lunch box is just perfect! It reminds me of my favorite magnet I bought my sister at the Chicago quilt show - "I child proofed the house but they keep getting back in!"

Thanks for all you do for the quilting and rug hooking world!

Kris Miller said...

Thanks for the great idea, and I'll bet that it would work for other box-type containers...like those old "train cases" that were used as traveling cosmetic cases. My mom always called them train cases but I don't know if that is the right terminology. Anyway, I have a couple of vintage ones and that would make a lovely fix for them.

Cute box and idea....

Sue Tokash said...

To Sandra, Do you mean while you are actually quilting it? Because I understand what you mean then. Arm fatigue would be my answer to why the quilt gets heavier. Plus I agree with Laurie I always have a cat sneak onto my lap and hide in the folds of the quilt while I am working.

What a clever sewing kit. Much nicer than the kids old plastic pencil box that I use now. Congratulations on 300th post!

Sue

Pam P said...

That is such a great idea for a pincushion! And thank you for posting about hand quilting - seems like everyone is quilting by machine now . . . I bought a "quilting hoop" last year to start my first hand quilted flannel quilt, and quickly became so frustrated that the quilt is still unfinished - wrong hoop!! No slack!! Now I know why - I was fighting with my tools :) Thanks Laurie, I'm going to have another go at it!

Holy wow! I'd love to win this! I've recently become addicted to paper-piecing hexagons, and have been thinking I need something other than a ratty old tote-bag from Target to carry them around in (they keep getting their corners bent!). This would be the perfect solution.

I hope I win it, cuz if I don't, I'm going to have to suck it up and make one! Thanks for being so generous, ladies!

OH, that's so CLEVER! I have one of the 'older model' lunch boxes so in case I DON'T win, I think I'll make my own (but I'd rather win, thank you very much..LOL).

So cute and clever!! Love this little sewing box. Hope I get to have it at my house!!

what a lovely idea. I use a small Russell Stover chocolate tin for a sewing kit. I put a small magnet in the lid to hold needles. it is just large enough for my stork scissors. It would fit in this lunch box for extra storage.... your ideas inspire all.
