I'm not sure what to call these...guess they could be used to hold makeup or as a toilet bag.








The tin can-parts are cut out the shape I wanted them, then I made holes with a hammer and nail, and used those to sew the metal to the fabric part.

The edges are pretty sharp though, so be warned if you should try something like it !

Thanks for looking! Any ideas for other things one could make with a tin can? Questions and comments are welcome Cheesy

Thanks for the nice comments Cheesy
I like the boxy ones too (especially the black and red one), they were easier to make, and look a lot better than my first two efforts Wink

I just wisted this-I think they're fab. You could put a handle/strap on them,too. Yay for recycling.

I'm glad you like it, and the recycling part of it too Cheesy But I have to ask, since I'm so ignorant, what is it to wist something? I've seen the word on  this site before, but not really understood what it is?
