Tin Topper is Finished!!!

What a challenge. I definitely have lots to learn about how to put together a tin topper. It is done, I am satisified with how it turned out for my first try. The pattern is a freebie from a French blog The teapot is stitched in 16ct fiddlers with an overdyed thread, Glory, from Carrie's Creation. I covered a Japanese loose leaf tea tin top that a friend brought me from Japan. I still use it to store my organic loose leaf tea. Eventually, I will stitch something to cover main body of the tin, but for now this was enough. Look foreward to next months challenge.
