Tin FOR Vonna



Ok, before I went off to Lanzarote I posted the tin I made for Vonna so that she received it before I came home again. I am really glad to say it arrived safely.

The design top is taken from Homespun Elegance ABC Friendship design, I again stitched the tin top on 40ct fabric.
I changed the style of the inside from what I have done on the other 2 tin exchanges and instead of lining it with just fabric I did a stitched inside and I took an element on the design and did the bird and flower and stitched a V for Vonna. The rest I lined with fabric and cotton ribbon.

Su,
What a lovely interpretation of the HE pattern. It makes such a pretty tin topper. I love the way you have finished it and the stitched inside is a lovely idea.

Your needlecase from Cathy is just lovely. It has a real vintage feel to it. I'm not surprised you love those French pins, they are just gorgoeus :>)
