Vintage Woven Sewing Baskets - yay retro!

Here at yay retro! we just love vintage sewing baskets, especially the woven kind. In the 60/70s woven was the thing, and often instead of traditional wickerwork, coloured plastic wire was used on a wicker frame.  The basket above has a white and green wire base which makes it strong and durable. This is utterly adorable with it's floral corduroy lid, and many a vintage sewing person would love it as a gift.

Inside the box is lined with flowery cotton, you could fill this with a number of sewing items and you'd have the perfect craft room addition! Search 'sewing' at yay retro! to find sewing boxes, buttons and vintage fabrics too - we can combine psotage for you.
