I made this altered spool for quaggy in the altered spool swap.  I chose to go with her sewing theme and I knew I was going to make a little shrine for her.  I had quite a few bits and bobs lying around in my stash but no spools!  So I drew out what I wanted to do and ordered a few things. 

I wanted a vintage feel and so I didn't paint the shrine just put in some paper for the background.  I used washi tape and bakers twine to make the bunting.  I had the mini spools in my stash and just wrapped them in thread.  I was also able to find that wee needle hiding out in some lace.  Lucky find since it was the perfect size!  I went back and forth with a few ideas on what to do with the spools.  In the end I decided on washi tape.


Here is a picture of the top/sides of the shrine.  It has some vintage measuring tape wrapped around it.


I hope that quaggy was happy with her spool shrine.
