Something for the accessories

My new sewing machine came with quite a few accessories and just a flimsy little accessory bag.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to stuff all that in that little bag.


On a recent trip to the dollar store I found all kinds of really nice boxes. For a dollar I couldn't pass this one up.

Now I wish I would have bought matching ones in different sizes. With the luck I have if I go back they will be all out of the ones that look like this.

They still have some in stock. Quick!

Surely a rather crafty person would be able to make a box (or bag) to quench the thirst of their desires... Now, someone like me would only be focused upon quenching their thirst, and if what can do the trick just happens to come in a fabulous Crown Royal bag--so be it!

Oh it's pretty and for a dollar even better!

That box is so pretty! I have plenty of boxes in all sizes. It seems I can never have enough ;-)
Hope the sizes you're looking for are still available!

i like it and hope they still have matching ones, gotta love those dollar stores. you could buy a brown box, make a slip cover and use the new machine to put embroidery on it.. how is that for help...

You did find a pretty box. I got the same flimsy bag with my new sewing machine. I also have a flimsy bag from the sewing machine I used to have. Perhaps I should combine my two bags full of accessories into a pretty box too. Think I will!

I love that little box. I hope there are more left when you go back too.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

I was thinking that you had made an organizer :) That box is really pretty! Hope you find more to match!

Grace said...

Now I would have thought you would have sewn a new accessories bag or made your own box...

Tough to get them all back and stay accesible. This was a good idea.

Wow, what a find! That is awesome! Okay pretty lady - I need the exact name of that "dollar store" please. :)

That is a beautiful box - and would fit those accessories perfectly. Hope you find some more. sandie

Marg said...

Now that is a good buy. They should all fit in that box. If you had gotten more, then you just have to find a place to put them all. Just my way of thinking.

Donna said...

There you go! Decorative AND useful!

Dee said...

I am a box and basket fanatic ...you could cover the boxes in matching material....:)

Catherine said...

That box is so cute! Great find for a dollar. I just bought some from Michael's and they were kind of pricy.

Jackie said...

I love The Dollar Store. We have one close by that always has the neatest stuff!

That looks just like the right size and it's pretty. Why do companies do stuff like that anyway?

You spend a wee fortune on something really nice and, then they send a bag for the accessories that is too small.

Yep the Dollar Store is a good thing! :-)
