That's the second time this week TWR has made me come over all nostalgic. I had a sewing box like the 'vintage' one in the photo - plastic basket weave and padded interior. Can't work out how to send you a photo of my current very sad-looking one which is basically a basket lined with a plastic bag to stop stuff falling out. I like the look of the (good old) John Lewis one.


My sewing box is a battered old wooden box that some builder abandoned, it used to hold screws and nails and stuff so it has compartments, but not small plasticky ones, nicely large, sturdy ones.
I used to have a builders platic extendable box, which I got from Sainsbury's Home Base, but being plastic it drove me mad because it was cheaply made. If someone could come up with a quality version of this I'm sure they'd make a mint. amanda

That's Not My Age

Love the sewing boxes, I'm not very crafty - but I am looking for an old fashioned 'house coat' do you know where I could find one?


I'm sure Smythson did a sewing box last Christmas, I saw it in US Vogue. Utterly bonkers, it cost about a million pounds but did look very nice. I keep my spare buttons and threads in a posh chocolate box.


Will look into house coats and see if we can find any non Nora Batty ones!!


Now a Smythson sewing box is what i'm after ( in my wildest dreams)I'll put one on my Christmas list and see what happens....
