5th Container Found in Sewing Room

Sweet P. has just about reached her 300th post and so ends the hunt for various containers around my sewing room. Many bloggers have shown their beautiful and inventive ways to store thread. I'm afraid my thread storage is neither beautiful nor inventive. When DS was a small boy, he collected many, many Hot Wheels cars and guess what?

Small thread spools fit perfect in each slot! I believe I brought this 'Hot Wheels car carrier' at the local Meijer's store while I lived in Michigan. I have looked in other discount-y type stores in their Hot Wheels section but haven't been able to find more. Well, DS has about 7 or 8 filled with cars...but where would I stash his cars if I stole one?!

I have two of these for my machine embroidery thread. I love them. I find that they come out of hiding around Christmas time.

Great reuse of an old toy. Does your son know you use it? Thanks for joining the contest.

Look at Wal-mart or Target. We bought Josh one for Christmas from one of those stores.
