Embroidered Box

I have finished the little embroidered bird. This was a fun, quick project to practice silk shading.
I bought this little wooden box...
and quickly transformed it with a couple of coats of acrylic paint...
The bird embroidery was destined to become a padded top...
I also lined the inside of the box with the same cotton fabric...
It is just the right size to hold my embroidery tools for class...
I am happy - it's another small finish!
