The Fabric of Human Ingenuity

At the risk of sounding exactly like one of those middle-of-the-night infomercials designed to seduce bleary-eyed insomniacs into making an impulse purchase: You can’t live without Sewing Momma’s fabric storage bin. You thought you could, but you can’t. Think about it. You’ve tried to house Junior’s trains in plastic crates, but these kinds of clunky boxes suck the class out of a room faster than Joaquin Phoenix’s chewing gum. You’ve tried using drawers to collect your living room’s sea of toys and family debris, only to find that besides being completely un-portable, most drawers seem to actually take morbid pleasure in sticking, jamming, and coming off their rollers (giving your husband another excuse to prove that his WD-40 really is the miracle elixir of the gods).

But have you tried this? A fabric storage bin that doubles as an all-purpose bucket, organizer, and Easter basket? A completely reversible, conveniently adjustable household item that is as stylish as it is practical? Probably not, unless of course you’ve been to Sewing Momma’s shop. Designed by a mom with a flair for outfitting functional, knick-knacks in fresh, feel-good fabrics, this amazing example of human innovation stashes humbly in any nook, cranny, or corner, hiding your mess within its beautiful fabric confines. And with all the creativity undeniably evident in this shop, it’s understandable that the proprietor would also be an artist in more ways than one, offering custom-painted portraits made from your own photos. All in all, Sewing Momma represents another example of a must-visit store and a can’t-miss product. Once you’ve “bin” there, you’ll be a believer, too.
