I ordered this stunning kit from Amanda who owns Scrimpy’s Craft Boutique
Her store can be found on facebook Scrimpy’s Craft Boutique
She sells the most amazing kits and I have bought almost all of them as they are great quality and fantastic value for money.
With this kit which was made by Fernli Designs exclusively made to Amanda’s specifications to house her stunning laces and trims.
When you get the kit it has 6 pieces base, handle/centre partition and 4 sides
I chose to decorate mine using paper and I chose a very simplistic wood grain effect
This was the very first stage of decorating.
I then used gorgeous trims and laces from Amanda’s shop to decorate and it worked out beautifully
The base I added 2 panels of felt then added a 3 larger panel over the whole base, I then added 1.5cm cubes for the feet and I added felt to the feet also to give it a more finished professional look.
I used a chiffon styled gathered trim first to add a softness to the caddy and I then added a beautiful guipure trim which has beautiful and delicate detail and to finish it off and also to tie in the pearl headed pins I have used on my spools I chose to add a 6mm pearl flatback trim around also.
My spools once I have some cream seam binding in stock that will be added to each spool
Overall I am extremely pleased with how it turned out and cannot wait for my next kit.
Lots of love and craft hugs Karen x
