Garden Altoid Tin

My latest tin gave me a bit of trouble. All my others were done using Monaco, a fabric with substantial weight, but still very flexible. This one is done on linen and maybe that was the problem. It's a pretty piece of 36 count hand-dyed linen from a Vikki Clayton grab bag. I stitched a cute little garden theme from an old Oakhaven Designs freebie by Tonia Pappen. Very difficult to get the ribbon trim on properly. This is for a little gift to someone, and I hope the flash drive will make up for the imperfect job on the ribbon gluing.

That is adorable!!! Look at the teeny little snail! *squee*

When I have a really lightweight fabric I will use iron-on interfacing on the back to give it body. Or if I'm stuffing with fiberfil because I hate those little curlies that work their way through.
