This past month I've really be into sewing. And when I was in my local miniature store (yup, there is a store just down the street from me that sells miniature and dollhouse supplies
) I found some of the cutest, and smallest sewing notions I have ever seen. They seemed perfect for using in an altered craft. So I bought them and made this:
I called it A Blessing for Sewer.
Here's a close up of the inside:
I took the label off a vintage spool from my stash. I can't remember where I got the picture of the woman. Probably from Alpha Stamps. I got the sewing machine, spools of thread, buttons, yarn stick (shown in next picture) and scissors from the miniature store. I used one of my many thimbles to set the sewing machine on.
All of the lace used is vintage. I wrote the blessing (and added the word 'be' between always and straight).
I had some scrap booking paper that looked like a sewing pattern in my stash and used that for the outside of the tin.
Thanks for looking!
