Sewing theme

Everyone who visits me knows I just adore anything with a sewing theme and this piece I loved playing with - I think it is very different for me. I actually made it some time ago but not had the time to blog it.


Can you see what the actual container is? Take a guess.

I have used a vintage dressmaking pattern, several clay moulds, fabrics and other embellishments to finish it off.

Not long before I finish work and then I will be able to visit you a bit more.

Take care.

This is indeed lovely sewing container, how clever of you to make it out of an Ice-cream container!!!! That is my best guess.
I am gazing at all your embellishments, the more I look, the more I can see, I love it when someone posts a piece full of cornucopia as I spend quite a bit of time drooling.

I reckon cat food or fish, again whatever it is it is amazing. I recognise the dolls house size clothes hangers. Caz

I would say it is a sardine can, but sure looks quite lovely in the new and improved altered state! Lovely as always! Hugs!

Hi Brenda my jaw dropped in wonderment when I saw this little beauty, wowzer it looks superb, all those wonderful sewing items, absolutely beautiful, I bet you would decorate a dolls house to perfection, I go with the majority in that it looks like a tin that had pet food in.
