8.27.11 ... tin can becomes pencil can with a twist


here is my step by step process for today's creation. we use these tin cans for our silverware and pencils and markers. but this time i wanted one i could safely toss my scissors into so i thought i'd make a variation on a hot pad as a cushion. i had this scrap of designer fabric and i folded it in thirds and then...


... in half and stitched through all layers in no specific fashion or pattern.


i trimmed around and discarded the excess and ...


... there we are. a pretty little protective base for my scissors. have i mentioned i am a scissorholic? i am. time for another episode of psych so ttfn. 

sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
