Recycling Can Be Cute

From a can of diced jalapenos to this! A cute holder for bobbins to sit next to my machine and make me smile every time I use it. I loved Lucy's version done in crochet, and then I saw this one at Crazy Mom Quilts. I used up little scraps of Pam Kitty Morning, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!  And I adore fabric covered buttons. I could make them all day long :)

And a BIG GIANT Thank You for all of your sweet comments!! Now back to my big project.....
