Hey there, guys! Remember the other day when I said I was at least a month behind with sharing projects with you? Well, holy smokes, I just found something from all the way back in June! Shameful. Well, despite being little bit behind the times, I think that you will like this project. A little bit of everything went into it- stitching, upcycling, felt, pretty paper, beads, power tools! Fun all around.
You guys know that I love to recycle. So when I find a product that I like and it also has nice, sturdy packaging, it's like a bonus! Silly, I know, but something has to excite me. (Fun Fact: I hoard glass jars...it's true.) Over the summer, before we went camping, I decided I need a little something to store my embroidery projects in. I whipped up a little case made from the packaging of face wash wipes.
It's pretty big too, considering the jar was excessively large for the product. (Sorry, Aveeno, it's true. I love you, but you went overboard on this one.) Which is one of the main reasons I decided to reuse it instead of just tossing it in the recycling.
The inside of the lid and jar. That had to be pretty too!
Want to see more photos of it?
You'll noticed I used a set of Sublime Stitching patterns and of course, metallic floss. (I'm an addict.) It's certainly not my prettiest stitching but I'm happy with it. And I think Mother Earth would be too.
What do you think? If anyone is interested I can throw together a tutorial. Just let me know. Hope you are having a craftastic day!
