Transformed salmon can

Our stitchery guild had a one day workshop years ago to learn how to take a salmon or tuna can & convert it to a small covered stitched container. The sides, bottom & lid all have felt glued to them first & then covered with material.  For my lid I chose to do some ribbon embroidery.  I use it to store buttons in.

  2. This is so beautiful! Hard to believe it started its life as a humble salmon can. :)
