The Bloggers Challenge this week is to ‘Alter It’. I decided to make a sewing kit for my daughter.
Have you ever been somewhere and had a button pop off or a strap of a dress ‘pop’…..yikes… I have- so I always carry a needle and thread of some type… ( My children are all required to know how to sew on a button prior to leaving for college).
I traced around the lid of the tin and made a template for the Basic Grey DSP. Then I stamped and colored in the House Mouse image and colored it with Copic Markers and Creative Inspirations (CI) Paint on the spool of thread. I painted a Prima flower with CI paint, and then decided to add a little ric rac painted with CI paint as well. The purple strip in the background is called faux velvet, and it is done with CI paint and is a Technique Junkies technique. I added purple ribbon around the ‘rim’ of the tin to finish it off. Add a piece of adhesive backed magnetic strip, and needles and pins will stay in place in your sewing kit-on the lid- you can make it as short or long as you please. If you are traveling, put a fingernail clipper in the kit to cut your thread if needed, and airport security will not take your scissors away……….
