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.

  4. 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!

  8. 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!

  17. 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.

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

  22. 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! :-)
