Today it is my turn on the Penny Rose Fabrics Blog and I have a little tutorial for you on how to repurpose a Vintage Tin and how to make a coordinating Pincushion and Needle Book.
I found this tin in my travels at a little Thrift Shop in Maldon, Victoria and instantly knew what I want to do with it.
I like to have a few hand stitched projects on the go at any one time and as such, I store them in tins so that I can grab one as I am walking out the door 'just incase' a stitching moment arrises.
And lets face it, a pretty tin is always better than a plain tin and a vintage tin is alway that little more special.
If you pop on over HERE, I have a full tutorial on how to line your own tin,
and also a Tutorial for this cute Needlebook and English Paper Pieced Pincushion.
The Apple Template can be downloaded from HERE.
I have already been putting my tin to great use but more on this project at a later date.
