Out of a Hat Challenge 21

Hello Everyone who pops in

Lovely to see what the people who joined in with us last week made, you are all very talented. Apologies to anyone who didn't get a comment from all four of us but we have been experiencing some problems with commenting on some blogs. Florence particularly is having a trying time with commenting.

Hope you will go to my fellow Hatters blogs Florence, Janet and Sandra's to see what they have made this week for the challenge-always worth a visit for sure.

 At Out of a Hat Creations this week are are making anything at all that has black, white and one other colour on it. Not too difficult really but maybe too many things to chose from. I went for something I needed as I have so many things that would be handier and look better if I organised them in nice containers.

I had this big cottage cheese pot that I didn't want to throw away so I thought I would use that as a base.

I bought a piece of beautiful leather look, black material a while ago so covered the pot with that and added lace to the top and the bottom.
Next I used an old white teeshirt and cut out some flower shapes and alsosome from the black material. Layered those and added a red button to add a bit of colour.

It holds allsorts of things that I don't use often but do like at hand just in case.
