Sew Suite April Play Day Project

This is the fourth project we made at my April Play Day.  It uses the Two Tags Die, which is one of my all time favorites!

When the Sewing Kit is opened, it looks like this:

Inside the kit are buttons and thread.  It is hard to see, but the Melon Mambo cardstock has been stamped with the pin cushion stamp with Melon Mambo ink.

Here is a picture that shows the contents better:

I had seen some of these sewing kits on Stampin Connection, and patterned mine after what I had seen, but didn't write down the names of the creators like I usually do.  If you made one of these, or know who did, let me know and I will give proper credit.
