Crafty Gifts

I recently created some handmade gifts.

These upcycled candy tins are great containers for Art-on-the-Go projects. 
I glued bits of scrap fabric to the tins with thinned white glue,
avoiding the space where the lid overlaps the base.

There is an article in the June/July 2014 issue of Quilting Arts Magazine 
that describes how to make a pocket for carrying index cards, 
so when an idea strikes you have something to draw on.

I embellished small silk screened fabric scraps with fabric markers and embroidery floss.
I really enjoyed the process of stitching through the 
muslin and felt, and the gifts were well received!
