Another Tin

Here is yet another covered tin - and I managed to cover it with fabric other than the one with little roses. Instead of felt to pad the lid I used some quilt wadding, it has given it a more domed look than the felt does. Also I ironed vilene to the back of the fabric for the sides, as I was using glue to stick this on I thought it needed a bit of thickness to stop the glue seeping through. Unfortunately you can still see the writing that is on the tin through the vilene backed fabric, it doesn't really matter, it's for me anyway!

Hello again.

I can see you like
"Die hard" movies
and a lot sweet fabrics : )

In england you like it
"floweriness". I where
in a hotellroom, there
was "flowerpower" on the
floor, wall, curtain,
bed and pillows : )

Have a nice summertime.

(No it is you turn to
write to me in Norvegian : )

Hi Ann, why not do one with step by step photos for those of us not quite as handy as yourself? It looks a lovely finished item.
