Since I've been teaching some sewing and quilting classes these few months, I have needed something for students to use for threads and bits of fabric, etc. when sewing. I was using plain tin cans, but decided that it'd be a lot more fun if they were given the glam treatment. Take a look at my pretty results.
Here is how I did it. I measured the circumference and the height. These cans are 7" tall, and I can't remember what the circumference is. But I added about an inch, so that I could fold under the raw edge and have a slight overlap.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
