So often I see something in a shop and instantly imagine what it will become when I start working on it. This happened one afternoon when I went to a little discount shop to buy my shampoo I use. I saw this box and opened it.
When I saw the inside, an idea I had was confirmed and I knew I had to buy it to start on a gift for a friend.
So I measured out the raised space on the top of the box and worked on a design that would fit just right. When finished, I mounted the stitched piece.
I then attached it to the wooden box to create a thread box for Diane. I finished off the edge with a piece of trim. This sweet little box has a removable tray and little places to hold special threads. I enjoyed trying to turn this box into something just that little bit special.
