My (some might say unhealthy) obsession with looking at sewing spaces on Pinterest has lead to (a perhaps even unhealthier) obsession with sewing boxes.
There are so many fun designs out there, ranging from the cute to the quirky – it almost makes me want to buy more sewing paraphernalia just so I need another pretty box to keep it all in. Here are my top picks for seriously stylish sewing storage.
Liberty are known for their swoon-worthy fabrics, so it stands to reason their sewing storage should be just as enviable. I love this pretty peacock print – and in my favourite colour too.
Purveyors of all things kitsch and cute Cath Kidston have outdone themselves with this adorable bungalow sewing basket. I love the flower detailing and pretty lining.
Although I’m a big fan of the cutesy prints that usually adorn sewing boxes, its nice to come across something a bit more unusual, like this quirky wooden box by Out There Interiors. Although some may wince at the £215 price tag, it’s worth it for its originality. One for the Christmas list, I think.
Anything nautical-themed is always a winner with me, so I’m a big fan of this beachy basket from John Lewis. This practical and pretty box has a useful tray for all your sewing bits and bobs, and a handy pin cushion in the lid. The bunting trim is a nice touch too.
I make no secret of my love for vintage patterns – and what better way to store them than this sewing chest? The cute little draws are just the right size to store cotton reels, buttons and ribbons, and the pin cushion on top ensures pesky stray pins will be a thing of the past.
