hi, i'm maggie.

{like the rod stewart song}

i'm always refining how i store my sewing supplies. a few weeks ago i rearranged my thread storage, and now it's kept in the box that formally held my makeup. 

so I turned to my birthday present from victor, sewing happiness by sanae ishida for a solution.

for my first attempt I kept it simple and omitted the color block, but I added an inside pocket with a snap.

I used the lions canvas print from the cotton + steel august collection left over from fitz's bed and kona teal cotton left over from etta, maya, and neela's flower girl dresses.
