This spacious fabric storage box will hold your sewing tools, fabric and haberdashery plus it also fits our Maker’s Workbook into the side too to help you keep track of your projects. I managed to fit over 10 metres of fabric into my Maker’s Box. The Vlieseline Style-Vil gives it really good body which means it can hold it’s shape even when empty. It has padded handles to make it easy to carry even when full, this fabric storage basket is ideal for sewing room storage or taking sewing projects and supplies out with you.
