Sewing Caddy

This is one of the samples I made for Kim Robertson's shows on Create & Craft at the weekend.

It was a Creative Expressions Stamping Show featuring sewing themed stamps, dies, papers and masks, as well as lots of other lovely Creative Expressions items.

The set of drawers is one of the mdf kits sold by Stamps Away. Once assembled, I painted the edges which would show using Cosmic Shimmer Shallow Sea Matt Chalk Paint. I also painted the heart shaped buttons which came in the kit. These were later attached to the drawers using some pastel Bakers Twine.

I then covered the mdf using various papers from the Couture Creations Sew Jo Paper Pad and Ranger Matte Finish Glue N Seal. 

I added a few die cut embellishments which were cut using the Couture Creations dies: Sewing Kit and Sewing Machine.

I also added a tan coloured zipper rose from Creative Expressions.

I filled the drawers with reels of cotton, pins, needles, etc.

Happy crafting!
