An Old Butter Dish ~ Part 2 ..

Hello my dear friends,

 unfortunately I was so busy these last few days that I couldn't, as I had promised, share my old butter dish in all it's 'new life and glory' but I am going to do so right now.

I gave this unwanted piece a new purpose and did so by adding something to it. I like the 'less is more' look these days more often and so I went with that thought for this creation. My favorite bits and pieces like drop cloth and seam binding in matching colors and a few  pieces of vintage sparkle were again my choice. In my eyes, they were perfect but I will let you be the judge of that in a moment.

Of course I had to turn it into something I just love making. Something that is just 'my thing' and you all know what that is, don't you?! I hope you are not going to be dissapointed with the new life I have given the old butter dish. From holding butter, it's new purpose is to hold bits and pieces of  haberdashery ... it is now a little metal sewing caddy and keep. It is a very subtle but pretty little piece now and I just love it.

I named it ...

' Hide ~ Away'.

And here it is ... I hope you like it!
  










I didn't know how lovely two layers of gathered seam binding could look and just give something the final touch it needed.


I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation today. I am busy working on a few more ideas right now and I am hoping to share somethng with you soon again. So do stop by from time to time and visit me here at Todolwen again.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.

  5. I was pretty sure there would be a pincushion involved in your new creation, and should have known it would be gorgeous. I LOVE the double layer of seam binding around the edge - so feminine and pretty.

  13. What a brilliant little piece. I thought the pincushion would be in the actual dish, but no, you went one better and hid it in the lid. Really delightful and an inspiration.
