City Crafter Challenge

The days and weeks are flying by ... Here we are ... Tuesday already and time for another challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog ... hosted for us this week by Cheryl 
Cheryl has chosen ... "That's a Fabrication" ... to use Fabric as part of our project


I had a little 4 draw box that I bought ages ago ... and I really should have photographed it BEFORE I altered it ... so sorry ... I just got carried away
Anyway that's my project for this week ... an altered box


You may be able to see that originally it was a green and white spot on the outside and pink inside


That was before I covered it in self adhesive fabric from Papermania


The hard part was getting those little handles off ... I re-attached them using brads with buttons glued on


It was a happy coincidence that the paper was also fabric related ... and with a few little extras - 
The large reel and pins from my friend June ... 
The ribbon tape from sweet Jan 
Scissors and small reels I bought from Here
image from Crafty Secrets
and buttons from my stash
It all came together to make a sweet little sewing box


June even put a tiny sewing machine charm on her reel

Now our lovely Cheryl will be taking a blog break from City Crafter and we will REALLY miss her ... But this is a very busy time for her so we send our love and very best wishes for the upcoming family wedding... 
That means this week we will be introducing a brand new member to the team ... I'm sure lots of you will know her from her fabulous work ... Welcome to Charlene Cundy of Expressions of Me

Ok, so now it's over to you ... The team at CCCB have lots more inspiration for you and our Guest Designer this week is our winner from Week 117 Catherine
If you would like a chance to win a Guest Design spot ... just link up your entry before 11. 59 pm (EST)
20th August 



Thanks so much for stopping by 
Have a beautiful day
