Isn't this a neat little idea? This is an Altoid tin, empty, of course. I just covered an empty Altoid tin with an embroidered piece of fabric, embellished it with some fuzzy balls and costume jewelry pearls. I added a bit of fiberfill to give it a "pincushion" look and feel. The picture below shows what I've filled it with. I think it needs a little something else.. maybe a small square of chocolate? You'll notice I glued a magnet under the top lid to hold needles and pins. The magnet came from one of those little calenders some businesses give away.
As soon as I find out who it will go to, I'll send it off in the mail to complete our online Altoid sewing kit swap. Thanks Beth, from QOR for hosting the swap.
