Do you remember the quote from Forrest Gump: “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get…” ? Well, I got a little surprise in some way. One more lovely little cross-stitch: cute mousy is sleeping in the box of chocolates. Now this mouse lives in my kitchen, and you can make the same of course.
Here is the cross-stitch pattern:

I just fell in love with this frame from IKEA. So I immediately decided hang it in my small craft room. These cute knobs are great for hanging my scissors. And inside the frame I made a big pincushion.There is nothing easier than to make framed pincushion.
You need to have:
You need to do:
Cut your fabric out and place it into the frame. Lay your fabric face down and place a batting in the center. Then put on top the cushion back and fix the end of your fabric with a scotch tape. This frame has a piece of plastic instead of glass, so I just used that as my cushion backAfter that just put frame’s back lid and your wonderful big pincushion is ready to use!
It’s time to get to work! How wonderful that I found these cute cross stitch patterns! Charming miniatures represent the alphabet and also a beautiful dolls that are engaged in different household chores!
I am a great admirer of the Ukrainian artist and illustrator Eugenia Gapchinska. In Kiev I often visited Gapchinska’s Gallery of Happiness and got a lot of fun. Her adorable paintings are always make me smile and tenderness.
See for yourself, if you wish, and you will love THEM!
I like to add such cute pictures to my interior and decorate by them different subjects. There are beauty, inspiration and spark of true happiness in all of them! Usually, I print images with a good quality printer and they look great.
Now I’ll tell you how to decorate stain box with reproduction of Gapchinska.Actually, everything is very simple. You take a box which has a some kind of transparent window on its cover and cut out the cardboard pattern same shape as this window. With this pattern you need to cut out the picture and attach it to cover. I did it with a solid cardboard back which was fixed well at the window’s edge small holes. This can also be done with using glue or tape.
Here so a useless little box turned into a cute casket that can be used as a storage for buttons, ribbons or jewelry!
