I met Killam Creative last weekend at a crafty get together, she's an amazing papercrafter and a really fun, artistic person!  We agreed ahead of time to make each other something to swap based on a theme, and the one she chose was butterflies.  Since I'm totally not an amazing papercrafter myself, I decided to make her a machine embroidered butterfly pin cushion out of an altoid tin.  I made a tin-sized pillow from the embroidered fabric, lined it with colorful felt and glued it into an embellished tin.  I was surprised to learn she makes and sells hat pins and collects pin cushions so this ended up being a good fit.  I love happy accidents (and Killam Creative).   Smiley

I'm so thrilled with it! It's too funny about the hatpins and pincushions, isn't it? You're the best (and a bit of a mind reader, I suspect)!
