sewing necessities box

A few years ago, I made this box at a workshop. It's made from cardboard and fabric. At that time everyone was making boxes for all kind of purposes. This one is a sewing necessities box.

See the inside It has a little holder for spools. And a wooden spool with a magnet attached on it for holding needles.

Do you see the little doll... she has a ribbon around her waist with on the other end a small pair of scissors. I can hang her around my neck when I'm sewing. The dolls dress can be used as a pincushion.

Here a photo of what's becoming a small sewing necessities bag. Is this the right word for it?? The little bag is for holding the spools etc.

I want some of that fabric...where's the shop? I'll go there when we're coming to Holland in April. Eindelijk weer n keertje naar huis :)
Love the sewing box..I know Holland's had many 'sewing hypes', mum used to sew ducks, they were beautiful...wonder where the pattern came from but she doesn't have it anymore :(
