project box

Someday I'm going to sew up a bunch of drawstring or zipper project bags, but until then I've been needing something to store my crochet projects in that would be around-the-house portable. This dark olive tweed vintage Mendel train case will be just the ticket. It's from an estate sale in Florida.

 I'm glad it has the original tray, perfect for notion-keeping. The tin 'love' box was used as a  favor at my daughter's wedding, which held M&M type candies in the wedding colors. Now it holds...

...my stitch markers.

The main compartment will easily hold 3 to 4 skeins or balls of yarn. I really enjoy being able to reuse and repurose objects from days gone by.

 Do you have favorite vintage 'lovelies' that you have put to good use?

Absolutely! Project bags are great for all kinds of crafty things. And organizing, too.
