First tin finish, and second PIF gift.

I have wanted to do a tin finish forever. I got some tins from Becky so I have been building up courage to give this finishing technique a try for a long time now. So yesterday I just went for it. I had stitched the perfect little design and wanted to make it one of my PIF gifts. This one is for Aiste. And I know how much Aiste loves these tins so I had the perfect gift.

This was a little harder than I thought it would be, but since it was my first time making a tin, I am sure it will get easier. I sure learned a whole lot from it.

I already have lots of ideas for more tins. Now to get to them!

And Aiste, I will call you soon and we will figure out a way to get this little PIF gift to you. I am staying home tomorrow since Sumarrós is sick, so you could come by if you are around. If not, we will figure something out 🙂 I hope you like your PIF gift sweetie!
