* decoupaged sewing tin

Posted on December 25th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review, Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

We gave my niece a copy of the book Beasties for Christmas.  It was kindly sent to me as a review copy by the publisher.  Last time my nieces and nephews visited, we sewed some stuffed animals together.  This book seems kind of perfect for them.  The designs are childish enough that I probably wouldn’t make them myself, but they are exactly the type of thing the kiddos will love.  Pretty simple too.

I put together a pack of felt to go with the book, then realized I should probably send some sewing supplies too.  One thing led to another, and I ended up decoupaging an Altoids tin for a tiny sewing kit.


The fabric is a cute scrap from a church sale grab bag.  Inside: tiny scissors, pins and needle, embroidery thread, and a few buttons.

    Talk about upcycling! This is an adorable idea. And hopefully it still smells of mint when they open it. Really, really cute.
