This is an approximately 100 years old wooden knitting box/trunk. It's more of a piece of furniture than a box really. My mum found it in the depths of Shepton Mallet flea market for (i'm told) a bargain price.
After being initially a little bemused by my Christmas present, I've rather fallen in love with it. It has a shelf an inch or so deep which sits on the top for all your needles, pins and little bits and bobs and underneath is a good sized space for wool and fabric. Unsurprisingly it wouldn't have fit on the Megabus back to London with me so I had to wait a while for my parents to visit and bring it up.
So if you are looking for somewhere to keep all your sewing/knitting supplies and a modern fabric box won't cut it, I would definitely recommend one of these if you can get your hands on one.
Do you keep your crafty supplies somewhere a little unusual? Let me know!
