I have mentioned that I don’t sew. I would like to be a person who can sew, and I think I may try again eventually, but right now I have 100 other hobbies that I already know I like and don’t have time/space for. So not yet. But I do own clothes that other people made, and occasionally the need for mending arises. I can do some of this, so I keep some basic supplies. Oh, and every spare button, sequin or loop of thread that has ever come with a garment:
That mess is how you know I’m not someone who sews. That thing, which originally contained some kind of bath gift set, was packed to the gills. But, lo! I found myself with a freebie compartmented case that I had no real use for:
It’s meant for traveling with cosmetics, but in my view it is suboptimal for that purpose. So I repurposed it:
The buttons that I couldn’t identify (or whose garments I no longer own) got sorted by color, and the rest stayed in their original bags.
Now I might actually mend things! But the truth is that I usually stain garments before they get to that point. How did you think I ended up with so many buttons?
