Apron Project in a Canister


Hello Everyone! Today I just have a little something to show you.  I made this gift in a canister for my daughter's birthday today.  I made up a kit for her to sew one of those new fancy aprons with.  It wouldn't fit in a mason jar so I pulled out a canister that I had that was new and awaiting a job.  So now it's her new sewing stash container.  I rolled up the fabric and tucked the other accessories around the edges.  Then I tucked a small container of skittles in the centre of the fabric so she'd have a sweet treat to snack on while she worked. :)  I had all kinds of ideas for the lid, but this seemed to be what stuck...and stuck it is since I hot glued it in place!  I used a doily that I bought at the dollar store and a few of my handmade crochet flowers that I added pearls and leaves to.  Then I picked a piece of lace that she has been eyeing in my craft room and stuck it around the rim of the lid.  It's simple but she loved it and I hope she makes lots of good use out of it!  and the apron since she's wonderful in the kitchen!
