Amanda Jean made one today, and the minute I saw hers I knew I wanted one. I'm always inspired by her clever ideas, but I thought she really outdid herself this time. I had no intention of a project today. No kidding....I happened to be making an appetizer this afternoon to take to an open house tonight, and the recipe called for a tiny can of olives, exactly like the one she used to make a bobbin holder! I took it as a sign that it was meant to be. :-)
I sure hope Amanda Jean considers imitation to be a sincere form of flattery, because I couldn't really think of a way to improve on her perfect design. In other words, I shamelessly copied!
I'm not the machine quilting diva that she is, so I embroidered my label. I really LOVED the look of her linen, but I don't own any of that, so I made do with the Kona I had on hand. I also lined my can with felt so my bobbins don't clang. (I know. I couldn't help myself.)
Is this the cutest thing? Makes me want to go wind a dozen bobbins, just because.
Making one was so much fun....
One for me, one for a friend, and one for the sweet lady who is teaching the quilt class I'm attending tomorrow.
I just need to eat two more cans of olives before I head to class! Ha!
I'm linking up with Amanda's Finish-It-Up-Friday.
Thanks, Amanda Jean, for a fun Friday project!
