For my creation, I made a pincushion. The jar is prima flowers jar that I altered.  The label on the jar uses the Pincushion Tag set.  The tag is created using the Pincushion Tag set for the image and border and the sentiment from the Spool Tag set. The tag is cut out with the customized tag die from ODBD The top of the jar I patched and sewed together.


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed my creation and will continue to enjoy the rest of the hop.The next stop is my dear sweet and talented friend, Sabrina.  

Your comments are greatly treasured and appreciated! Have a great day!!
