More Cotton Reels/Spools

Finished the one that was on my desk, using Graphic 45 papers.
This is the top with all the sewing bits in place.
and this is with the lid removed showing the inside.
More Grpahic 45 papers for this version.
Showing the decorated top.
This version used the bottom half of the large Bisto tub so I had to come up with a lid that would stay on... used a circle of chipboard raised on foam pads which works a treat!
Here are the three completed ones... now just need to get the sewing machine out and make the snippet rolls!

  9. i cam and saw these spools and i told you how wonderful they are - but clearly I never clicked the post comment button...

    i think it will be better to know what peoples give sways are in advance so there is no mistake,

    I usually post between 7am and 8am GMT

    I am usually in the 40 -60 region of links...

    you doll is formed but not dressed, so you could end up with your doll (and wooden cotton reels) around the woywww birthday time anyway...a framed picture could bankrupt me - have mercy...

    also the majority of woywwers don't follow me so they are blissfully ignorant (in the nicest possible way)

    actually I just can't keep secrets...never tell me anything unless you want the world to know...

    i suppose I could withdraw her for breaching rules and give people a set of stickers?
