Wool Applique Tool Box...


Tool Box from the 1950's - "Tool Box turned Wool Box"

Inside of Tool Box is lined with Felted Wool Fabric

When I am at yard sales, I cannot resist purchasing old tool boxes and trinket boxes.  They call out to me with endless possibilities ! You can find these boxes at Thrift stores and Consignment shops as well.  I have covered this old Tool Box with wool applique, Hand Embroidery and Beadwork. 
 Each house shows a different season. All the edges are
finished with a Glass Beaded Blanket Stitch.
Now what to fill it with ??
