    I think I have all the pieces except for the 2 small screwdrivers that go on the left side. Sorry for the toes, at least I had a pedicure!! LOL
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    There is a group on Yahoo--Singer. They may have some ideas. It is just a place to show off your vintage Singer 'stuff'...

    Thanks. I do think these boxes are so neat. I am wanting my husband to make me one. So any information on them is very helpful.

    Maybe someone will let you borrow theirs so he can make templates. Maybe a new business?

    They come up for sale on eBay regularly, often they don't have the contents, so then you could reline it with new felt and customize the interior.
    I used to be "hot", now it's just "hot flashes!"
