Here's what it now looks like. I wish I got a before photo. Just cos! lol. I am sure you all know what a Pringles container looks like!!
The large flower on top is to cover up Jessi's damage to to tin. It looked too dull so I brightened it up with some glitter. I love glitter :D The words on the tin read "when I think of you" and inside I will write how mum makes me feel. Well... the good stuff anyways!! :D I am not sure how I will do the inside yet. I have a few ideas in mind.
Last night I started this gorgeous butterfly. Thank you Helen for linking me thepattern. I started it right away! I have another butterfly I started earlier in the week still missing the upper wing on one side! lol. Talk about short attention span. I hope to make a couple more butterflies and gift them to my friend Helen who's nanna's cottons these were (different Helen to who linked me). I am not sure if she will understand the gift, that they are a kind of keepsake from her nannas items. But that's no matter. Jessi adores the butterfly so I will probably have to make some and stiffen them, then hang from the ceiling in her room. This particular flutterbye was really quick and easy to make. That's why the other is missing one half of a wing, it wasn't so easy! I will hopefully finish it tonight. Since you can't see the tape very well, the butterfly is about 10.5" across (yes, that's inches)!!
