I have to take little Lucy to the hospital today for an ultrasound scan. She has had tummy pains for about 18 months now and we can't get to the bottom of it. This is the next step! Hopefully we'll find something out soon.
Onto my post proper today. I have made myself a new sewing box - the old one was starting to fall to pieces so it was time for a new more substantial box to be created. This is what I did using an MDF box from the MDF man:
The first thing I did was to paint the box with silkies from Imagination Crafts. Next I used a Crafty individuals leaf stencil/mask to create the pattern on the lid. I used pebeo silks (cinnamon) applied with cut and dry foam through the stencil.
Next I turned my attention to the 'topper' and stamped the images from Crafty Individuals and also cut the scissors using a sizzix die. I used clarity stamps for the lettering.
Next I added the lace - this was from a win over at Papertake weekly when they were sponsored by the Ribbon Girl. Lush Lace!!!
I would like to enter my sewing box into the following challenges:
Sunday stamperpinkleart: Natural
Crafty Individualscraftyindividualsblog: Vintage fashion
We do doobadoowedodoobadoo: Shabby Chic
ABACanythingbutacard: Repeating pattern
ALBCpaulaholifieldcrafts: Sew what?
I hope you've enjoyed your visit today ..... I have a task this afternoon - making and decorating Lucy's birthday cake - I'll blog a picture of it tomorrow if it looks okay! Its going to be very dark!!! She has chosen black icing!!!! Oo er missus!
Take care and thanks for dropping by!
