Hi. I wanted to show y'all the sewing basket i reconstructed for my sister for christmas. We agreed to exchange gifts with a sideshow-carnival theme.
Here's what it looked like before

and the ugly inside

And after ripping apart embrodering and stenciling and trying to figure out how to put it back together

and the inside

I'm kind of proud of it, although i would give myself more time to figure out how to put all back together if i did it again.

Woah! I really, really like that! I would love to have the exact one for myself and really like the embroidery on the top.
Actually, I think I may attempt something of this sort in the near future...
Rock on =)

I thought i took good notes about how things were put together but ultimately i had to guess at somestuff.
