Had a bit of a crafty afternoon on Sunday, couldn't bring myself to do my garden!
This old toffee tin in the summer house was looking scruffy so thought I could make it look prettier.
Got out my vintage pinking shears and cut small shapes out, there was a good selection of fabrics. Covered the tin with a patchwork of yummy fabric using book binding glue. This is a PVA glue but it seems to be stickier than normal PVA, ideal for this. I used a small brush, had the pot of glue open and little dish of water, kept dipping the brush in the water then into the glue, this made it easier to spread the glue on the tin and fabric. On the edges of the tin just used the glue without watering it down so it stuck better.
Then I up-cycled a treacle tin as well. Finished them both off with vintage lace edging and some narrow pink ribbon on the toffee tin.
Will do the other two tins another time. Its a great way of using up the tiniest scraps.
