Alibaba Pots

I found this old fabric-covered pot (the smaller one) in the charity shop a while back.  I love the vintage fabric and real 60's vibe going on with the gathered fabric.  I have lots of spare baby milk tins which would work well and wanted to have a go at making one using one of the tins.  Great for keeping crafts or make-up in.

Measure your tin and work out length of side+width of base+length of side+8cm and that will give you the circumference of the circle of fabric to cover the tin.

Measure the diameter of your lid and add 8cm and that will give you the circumference of the fabric circle to cover the lid.

Lay out your wadding and draw round the lid and cut out your lid wadding.  Then measure the height of your tin plus the circumference of your tin and cut out a piece of wadding that size.

Glue the wadding to the lid and to the side of the tin using your glue gun.

Take your fabric circle for the lid and sew round the edge in big tacking stitches, lay the lid inside the fabric and pull the thread tight to gather the fabric around the lid.  Sew a few stitches to secure.

Tack round the piece of fabric for the tin, place the tin in the centre of the fabric circle and pull the thread tight to gather round the tin.  Sew a few stitches to keep it secure and tight.

Take the gluegun and glue the fabric in place and trim any excess fabric off.

Sew a button to the top of the lid

  2. Look at the way my buddy Wesley Virgin's adventure launches with this shocking and controversial video.

    Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he revealed hidden, "MIND CONTROL" secrets that the government and others used to get whatever they want.

    These are the same secrets many famous people (especially those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and successful.

    You probably know how you use less than 10% of your brain.

    That's mostly because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Perhaps this expression has even occurred INSIDE your very own mind... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's mind 7 years back, while riding a non-registered, trash bucket of a vehicle without a license and with $3.20 in his pocket.

    "I'm very frustrated with living payroll to payroll! When will I finally succeed?"

    You've taken part in those thoughts, am I right?

    Your very own success story is going to happen. You need to start believing in YOURSELF.
