Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Vintage Sewing Kit

Vintage sewing kit- pink   Vintage sewing kit- pink2

The vintage sewing kit that I put together last month (the post can be seen here) was well received by the friend it was intended for, so I decided to make another. I thought I’d use a different colour scheme for this one, and as you can see, the friend it was made for likes pink!

The box used for this kit is interesting- it was one of two that I bought in a second hand shop. There is a plaque in the lid of each saying that they are made from elm that formed a part of Waterloo Bridge (and was removed from the bridge during restoration work). The plaques make the boxes just a little more interesting, and the smooth, satin finish to the wood means they are lovely to handle.

What unexpected things you can find when shopping for vintage items!
