Are you tired of losing your crafting essentials?
Looking for a stylish solution? You’ve just found it!
Originally plain, unassuming, and unloved, this mid-century sewing box, rescued from a
charity shop, has been meticulously upcycled, restyled and reborn as a versatile organiser for crafters of all kinds. From knitters and crocheters, to felters, embroiders and cross-stitch enthusiasts, there’s plenty of space here for those needles, scissors, silks, wool, patterns, threads, and all the other wonderful crafting paraphernalia that you’re forever misplacing!
Inspired by the funky and vibrant colour palette of the 1970s, where bright and lively shades reigned supreme, and stripes were the epitome of chic, the iconic design across this box pays a wonderful, more subtle, homage to those fabulously over the top designs. The result is a stunning piece that gives a nod to that iconic era while still feeling fresh and modern.
But this isn't just a sewing box; it's now a crafters; dream.
The interior has been relined with a wonderfully bright fabric, and a new internal tray,
perfect for all your crafting essentials, has been built and added. The hinges have been
replaced for sturdiness, and it’s been painted in glorious shades of Fusion Mineral Paint.
Finally, a protective topcoat ensures that this piece lasts and lasts and lasts. Something to pass down to the grandchildren perhaps?
It truly is a timeless piece that celebrates the art of handy crafts. It's a functional work of art with its nostalgic charm and contemporary allure, it's a canvas for your imagination, so grab your tools, unleash your imagination, and make this box part of your essential crafting kit today.

All my items are hand-painted, professionally upcycled pieces which have been restored and updated for the modern home. They are one-off pieces that have had a previous life, so please expect some unique imperfections. As hand-painted pieces you should expect a high quality craftsman finish rather than a machine/factory finish.
