Sew-phisticated: Secret Sewing Storage!

Hide yo’ crafts, hide yo’ threads — we’re decoratin’ everybody up in here!

My Mom-Mom gave me her old 1960′s Kenmore sewing machine, and I am just itchin’ to get stitchin’ on some crazy craft ideas! The only issue? It looked a little cluttery and out of place sitting on my white office book shelf in all of its almond-bisque accessorized glory.

I don’t know how to sew a cute cover  (or anything else!) yet, so I decided to whip up this super simple solution. My mom coined the term, “Low-Impact Crafting,” for easy craft ideas, and that’s EXACTLY what this project is!


  • Cardboard Box
  • Scissors or Box Cutter
  • Wrapping Paper or Kraft Paper
  • Shipping Tape

Step One: Cut A Hole In That Box

I grabbed an old cardboard box that was lying around & cut two of the sides so that it could easily slide along my book shelf to cover the machine. The open sides go against the bottom & side wall of the book shelf. If you’re planning on storing your machine in the middle of the shelf, then just cut off the bottom flap & leave the other three sides (and front)  to cover it!

Step Two: Slap Some Cute On That Box

I grabbed my favorite white kraft paper & covered up the outside of the box so that it would match my white book shelf & the rest of my office decor. Then, I added a sweet little label to remind me what was hidden behind it.

Step Three: Stash It Under That Box

Seriously, that’s it! You just created the world’s easiest faux cabinet front and clutter concealer. Revel in the glory.
