November Art With Heart Challenge – A Stitch In Time


Hello there! Eileen Hull's November Art With Heart Challenge is underway and to celebrate her new Stitchlits collection the theme is A Stitch In Time. You can interpret that theme however you like, just show us your oh-Sew-crafty projects for a chance to win some of the new Stitchlits Sizzix dies. My teammates have been making some incredible projects and we are all very excited about this new collection. One of my favorite dies is the Cantilever Sewing Box. The possibilities are endless! It opens up just like the real thing. I made mine steampunk style:

Unfortunately I was a little over efficient in deleting my raw photo files and I dumped all my step photos. Oops! Trust me when I say that this really isn't hard to put together; it just looks complicated. I'll just have to make another one for a tutorial. =) Onward with more photos:

Did I mention that I love gears?
Now check out how it opens! Sooo cool. You can fit all sorts of trinkets into it:

I hope that you head on over to Eileen Hull's blog and check out all the fabulous projects made with the new Stitchlits collection. It's sure to be a favorite!

I am also going to enter this Sewing Box into the SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenge blog's Winter 'Anything Goes' challenge.
