I was lucky to be paired with cabaute in the recent OTT Halloween Holidays 2017 swap. She challenges me to do my best and come up with something that fits her themes in each swap she joins!

Since she likes vintage items, I decided to search the internet for an image that I could reasonably use with my limited embroidery skills.

I painted a simple little box black and then added some subtle striping by using glitter/shiny nail polish in a silver/grey. I added felt to the bottom and a neat paper trim that I got from Alpha Stamps.

The paper inside is also from Alpha Stamps as are the two trims that I used on the lid.  I love those tiny pom poms and have them in every color ...finally getting to use some of it! Grin

I drew the outline of the cat face on felt and then basically free handed the details. Probably why he is a bit off center...lol...

I am using cabaute's pics since she is a way better photographer than I am!

how fun, what a great swap item!

but, um, maybe call it a "small" box, so your title doesn't look like it's about a "litter" box...

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
