My Other Creations: Matchbook Sewing Kit

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is, "It's a Stitch Up!"  Translation: incorporate stitching or sewing somehow into your project.  I decided to make a sewing kit out of a matchbook.
You've seen the outside view.  Here's a peek inside:

To make this, I used the Tim Holtz Matchbook die, then I used some Tim Holtz fabric panels for the inside.  I cut out two felt rectangles, then sewed two pieces of fabric around the felt (like a sandwich with the felt in the middle).  This made the fabric panels more "padded" and the pins and needles stayed in them very well. 

I sewed these panels into my matchbook, then I gave them some more oomph by gluing on some fabric that I'd stamped and colored.

I wrapped some embroidery floss around a ticket , which fits inside nicely, and there you have it!  I used a lot of fun supplies on this project that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:

I can't wait to see what you come up with for this theme!  Just upload your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for your chance to win $50 to the Simon Says Stamp store!
