My Cigar Box Swap for June

Hey Hey Hey!! Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians out there!!! As promised, here are the pictures of my box I altered for Jade's cigar box swap. The theme was "sewing box" and the color challenge was MOD retro-chic. Also, there was an additional challenge of a pincushion to create!! So here are some pictures of what I created for my squirrely sister!!!!! I hope she likes it!

Here is the pincushion I created with my sewing machine!! I went with different fabrics that match the theme of the box. I cut each fabric into 2-1/2" squares and patched them together with my sewing machine to create one whole square. I used a teal satin material cut roughly the same size as the top and sewed it together. I stuffed it with cotton batting and voila!! A simple pincushion! I actually never used my sewing machine since I got it for christmas, so this was an addicting but fun project. I hope you will try it as well!
