If you're looking for a hip, new addition to your shelves, set aside some time for a homemade sewing box. It's a neat way to keep organized and is also a fun activity to get your creative juices flowing.

The box requires lots of wood work, which isn't easy for some. But because this storage box won't be carrying too much and is not heavy-duty, it can be put together with wood glue -- no nail guns necessary.

The great thing about DIYs is that you don't have to search hours for exactly what you want; you can just invest that time to perfect the product to look just how you want it. It's also cost-efficient and you'll be guaranteed that no other person has the same thing.
