Just last week Mr. Thomas brought home this wonderful vintage sewing basket. It's pink - which I love! The top is wooden, with a pretty flower cut out decoupaged on it.
Here's a peek inside. See the cute curved spool rack? It was filled with lots of vintage sewing goodies, too. Old thread spools, some good, some just for fun. Needle packs, pins, a handful of little sewing kits, and even a sock darner. Do you see the old prescription pill bottle on the left? It's dated 1973, and thankfully filled with pins - no pills!
I love how it matches the pink Atlas Sewing machine. I've got her all tuned up and have been sewing with this lovely machine lately.
I also found this matching pink metal accessory box on Ebay. It doesn't look pink in this picture, but it is - really - it's pink!
Here's the front of the Atlas machine. This has been really fun to sew with. It makes a terrific straight seam.
And one last find - not pink, but still fun. It's a pattern box, and filled with old 1960's and 1970's dress patterns. They are fun to look at. I should take some photos of them, too. Included in the patterns is a 1970 pattern for a Burnoose made from a bedspread! Really cute - now all I need is a 1970's bedspread.
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
