Tilda's Sewing Kit

Good morning peeps!

It's the last Sunday of the month, we have a new Magnolia Only challenge
for you at The Ribbon Girl. The theme is ~ Add a die cut.

For my DT creation, I made a Tilda's sewing kit.

I bought these wooden boxes from Michaels for $1.50 each a few weeks ago.
They are such a great little boxes for alteration projects.
The cylindrical box measures 3"(W) x 4"(H), and has a nice closure.
It's perfect to turn this into a sewing kit with a pin cushion on top.

I took the wooden knob and elastic off and covered the box 
with pretty Pion Design paper- Alma's Sewing Room collection.

I cut 2 circles (3.5" and 3.75" in diameter) and cover them with DP
and lace before I glued them to the top and bottom of the box.

I added a piece of lace inside the door to hold extra pins.
The box is large enough to store quite a few things inside.

I made a little fabric pin cushion and glued it to the top of the box.
I decorated the pin cushion with laces and applique.

I used Tilda Makes A Blueberry Blanket image.
I stamped the image on TAP paper and colored it with Copics.
I then transferred the image by ironing it on to sticky backed Canvas
and added a clear plastic sheet to make it more sturdy.

I decorated the rest of the box with Pion Design paper cutouts,
Tilda's Birds images, wooden spool, flowers, and
die cuts (swirls, dragonflies, fence, buttons).

The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
13mm Olivia white cluny lace; 8mm Rebecca ivory cluny lace;
pink, blue, white Pretty Blossom flowers; white Stamens;
10mm pale pink open rose.
