Sew Much

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having great weekend..:) I have been busy most of the day trying to play catch up, and cut some paper for my club girls coming by tomorrow. I am finally done, so I decided to sit down and share another sample with you. :) I have a 3D project for you today.. Can you guess what it could be by the title of this post?? Something to do with sewing maybe?? hmm... Let's see if you are right -

Wow..! You guys are so Bright!! Now I must tell you, this little creation is not of my own invention, I found this sweet basket on Pintrest, and recreated it using Stampin' Up! products. :) Here is picture of what is actually in the sewing basket -

I created a little button card using the Decorative Label punch, and a card of thread with the Tab punch. I had some small wooden spools that I recycled and added some Pear Pizazz and Rose Red Seam binding to them,... and a pin cushion -

using an old glitter container. I cut a circle of fabric about an inch larger then the lid of the container. I sewed a basting stitch around the edge of the circle, then stuffed the circle with batting. Once it was as full as I liked, I pulled the thread tight so it would close the circle, making it look like a little pillow. I then hot glued the "pillow" to the top of my lid. I added some Pear Pizazz twill ribbon to hide the glue line and finish the lid, adding the pink 1/8 taffeta ribbon and the button for detail. I LOVE this little pin cushion container because it is so functional. My pins and cushion are always together now. :) Thanks "Sew much" for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

I just discovered your blog tonight and how fun that I came across this basket! I'm the one who created this basket design and tutorial that you found on Pinterest! So glad you enjoyed my tutorial! Your basket is super cute. I love how you took the tutorial for the wrist pincushion but used an old glitter container to make a pin cushion that holds the extra pins! So clever. I'm enjoying all of your wonderful cards and projects!
