Mini Tin Cans and French Market Bag


I have been thinking to make some metal things for a long time. These mini tin cans are not exact metalwork but I am glad for the first step and expect to do some soldering in the coming weeks.



Inspired by Marie (Le Petit Monde de Merveilleux de Marie), I tried weaving a French string bag this week.

It’s not finished yet because I don’t figure out the way of closing. LOL  I have ever made some tatting lace in 2009 but it is as painful as the bag weaving for me.  It kills not only time but also my life.  :o)


It’s a cheerful Friday today cause our two furniture have just arrived this morning. I will decorate one of them with my dolls and miniatures after the hubby comes back from the business trip next week.
Hope you like this post and have a great weekend, :-)

Les boîtes de conserve sont très réussies. Quant au filet à provision, je suis sûre que vous allez trouver une solution pour le fermer.
Bravo ! Comme d'habitude, votre travail est TOP ;-)

Thanks for all your kind and sweet comments on the tins and the bag, ladies! They do make me smile since they are that tiny and adorable. I will keep some for my projects and probably add some in my shop once when they are ready to leave.

Dear Catherine, thank you so much for the hints!!! You are the top specialist in my heart. :P

Merci pour ce lien, Christina !! Vous êtes vraiment très gentille.

Patty, I want to put some bread, vegetables, fruit and newspaper in the bag. Hope I can really complete it soon. LOL

Have a lovely Saturday!!

Kleine Vingers said...

Absolutely great your tins!! Wauw I love them.
Good luck with the bag. If you knot the strings from one side with the strings from the other side of the bag and leave some fringe you are able to close the bag. But it is fiddly

Flora said...

Oh, just perfect...
I love them :-)
We must be careful not to cut your fingers with tin...
Mini hugs, Flora
