Mini Grandma Sew Box

DSC_0005A few weeks ago I posted about finding the sewing boxes my great grandma liked to make {link}. They were tucked away in the garage in a box and it was pure treasure when I found them again. After looking at the whole set, the random colors and the pin cushion also made up of little bits I decided that using up leftovers must be in the blood. Maybe it was something my grandma instilled in my as a small child.

In tribute to my grandma and my great grandma, I made a mini sew box with a mini pin cushion. I wanted something to put in my mending basket – Friday is now my mending day officially – and this is just the thing. You can make the mini sew box and pin cushion in just a few evenings of crafting.

  1. This is so cute my son and daughter have been begging me to start teaching them to sew my little girl is only 6 1/2 so plastic canvas will be a great place to start learning the basics of hand sewing.

    Thank you

  2. That is so cute! I was soooo into plastic canvas when I was little. I had a plastic canvas doll house furniture book for Barbie sized dolls and I must have made everything in it. So much fun! I’ll be linking to this.

  3. I have been thinking so a lot about doll houses lately and was pleasantly surprised at how many pc patterns there are out there for dressers and things. I might just have to make a few. I’ve become a little obsessed with playing lately and a doll house I think is next on the list. Thank you so much! I’m glad you like it!
