Hi and welcome! I have a sweet little Sizzix project to share with you today. I don't use my sewing machine so often nowadays, except for on paper, but I did a lot of sewing growing up. I made tons of dolls clothing and also liked to make my own clothes.
This little Sewing Supplies Drawer Unit was made with one of the new dies by French General, called Box w/Drawer. The dies are awesome, and certainly not only for sewing topics. You can see the whole release here. I had fun using some old and new embellishments to decorate my drawer unit. The papers are by Graphic 45, the Home Sweet Home collection. The project is smaller than you might think and very cute and dainty. It would work great for a dollhouse too. The finished drawer unit, excluding the stuff on top, measures 2.5 x 2.16 in.
The little boxes were die cut from patterned paper. You can also skip the lid of the box and make open drawers. There is an extra die cut to place in between the drawers in that case. There are instructions for how to assemble project in the packaging insert. Use this die cutting sandwich: Extended Cutting Pad, die facing up, Extended Premium Crease Pad.
The 'frame' for the box was die cut from thin chipboard and covered with patterned paper. I inked all the edges and added a second layer of patterned paper.
The basket and pair of scissors come from the French Icons #2 Framelits Dies w/Stamps set. The scissors were embossed with platinum powder and the box stamped with Potting Soil ink. I used the coordinating dies to die cut them. Use this sandwich: Sizzix Magnetic Platform, Cutting Pad, paper, die facing down, second Cutting Pad. The cute thread spool was die cut with the Sewing Basket & Supplies set, from wood veneer. I also added a vintage button and a safety pin.
I had fun decorating the top of the box. The measuring tape was done by adhering natural sticky-back canvas to cardstock and embossing it with the Ruler folder. I did two pieces and stapled them together (you don't really see the staples). It was inked and rolled up. I suddenly remembered the little sewing machine charm which I got more than ten years ago, and was pleased to manage to find it in minutes.
I hope you enjoyed this project and thank you for stopping by today!
