SEWING TREASURE BOX: Another gift I made for another crafty friend. I am also entering this project as my take on I Am Roses Designer Challenge. The theme for the month of March is Designer's Choice of Color Combo. I chose Designer Maria's choice of Color Combo, which is purple and green.
Warning: There will be plenty of pictures in this post to show details on the project and I hope you will take your time to look at it. Thanks!
My very own sewing treasure box...
I used a digital image from my Frog Dog Studio Mixed Media Kit.
Love the vintage/antique look...
I used Paper Smooches stamp for the tag.
Lots and lots of texture using decoupage, embossing paste, stencils and metallic paints.
Initially, the box was painted with metallic greens and purples but somehow I felt I needed
to add a third color and I chose sunset gold.
What is a sewing treasure box without some treasures and goodies, right!?
I added trims, laces, pin cushions, pins and some thread.
DD wants me to add more stuff so I will grab more stuff when I have the chance to
go back to the local Japanese store.
I cut these dress forms and wind laces and trims.
I made this cushion, which some says look like stool or hat.
I think its cute!
This is what the mini lunch box/luggage look like before I altered it.
