"MY SOUL IS FED" Sewing box makeover for Mothers day.

 Good Morning My BEAUTIES!
I hope you all had a GORGEOUS weekend.
We celebrated Mothers day this weekend and 
I couldn't have asked for a more GORGEOUS day.
I honestly can't remember the last time we had this 
beautiful of a day on mothers day..or in the last 9 months in general.:)
Seeing as this past weekend was mothers day and I am always at a loss as to 
what to give my mother I was so happy when I found this!
 If you can believe it..I was out THRIFTING.....:)
SHOCKING I know...when I happened upon this sewing box.
My mother is a gifted seamstress..Even making my sisters wedding dress.
I on the other hand...can only sew on a button 
or darn a sock...and who are we kidding...who darns socks anymore..:)???
My Momma has many sewing machines and old hat boxes and things filled with all her finery
but I was sure she didn't have one of these.
I did what any good daughter would do and called her and asked
her....she said she didn't; so I grabbed it and brought it home.
 Since she knew what she was getting I figured I should at least
personalize it a little bit.
So I headed to my SILHOUETTE 
I picked out my graphic and had it start cutting my vinyl
 I thought this was a pretty fun graphic 
and perfect for the top of her sewing box.
 Once the vinyl was cut I used clear transfer tape to transfer the image to the top of the box.
Here you can see me placing it where I want the graphic to go.
when I am ready I pull off the backing and get to transferring.
 You can see here the transfer tap on top of the vinyl.
 I use my little scraper to rub over the top and slowly pull of the transfer tape..
Leaving the graphic on the top.
I was thrilled with how it turned out.
I even felt like a little kid again, making my momma 
something for mothers day..
Hopefully she likes this a lot better than that macaroni necklace 
I made her last year....:)  ( was more than a couple years ago) 
I hope you enjoyed this latest makeover.
