There it is all folded up on the right :)
This is the page that caught my attention. I needed some lightweight cardboard to stiffen each section and found cracker and cereal boxes to be just the right thickness.
Folding and stitching narrow strips of fabric over 1/4" elastic was a challenge.
I chose this fabric for the back.
I had just enough 1" twill tape to stitch in between the sections and tea-dyed it to make it look old. I also had some leftover binding which was the perfect color to finish the edges. When it was all together I filled it with some vintage sewing supplies.
The buttons are for decoration only. I had stitched a strip of selvage across the top even though the instructions called for grosgrain ribbon. In the pocket I put packets of needles and needle threaders.
I filled the middle section with an antique needle case, scissors, sewing kit, and a needle book which belonged to my mother-in-law.
The lower section has another needle book, thread wheel, hooks and eyes, and snaps to complete that vintage look :)
I'll keep it displayed on this dresser where I can see it every time I go to my sewing room :)
