Hi all :-) I hope all is well with you and that you’re enjoying the long lazy days of summer :-)

I decided to make a little emergency sewing box for Amy to take with her when she goes back to Uni :-)

I have had this SU tin for ages, it was full of hardware, but I emptied it out, sanded it down and decorated it :-)

I will link the products I used at the bottom of this post but just to say the scissors were cut out on the Silhouette Cameo machine and the little needle book does actually have real needles inside it ,,, :-)

I will make a trip to the haberdashery and add more bits :-)

Thanks for looking :-) our fabby GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous creations so please hop along to the PTW to see what the other girlies have been up to :-)
