Stencil the large cookie tin lid. Touch up if needed. Allow it to dry.
Cut fabric for lining the tins using the bases of the tins and the depths of the sides for measurements. Cut circles of fabric for the bases and strips for the sides.
Glue fabric in place using Mod Podge.
In order to create sections in the large cookie tin, cut two cardboard strips that measure the width of the tin in length and are the depth of the tin in height. In my example, my tin is 12" wide and 2" deep, so my strips are 12" long x 2" wide. Cut a notch into the center of each cardboard strip.
Cut fabric strips to cover the cardboard strips. Cut the strips the length of your cardboard strip and twice as wide so that it can be folded over the top of the cardboard strip and give the top a finished edge. Paint the back side of the cardboard with Mod Podge, place the fabric in place, paint the front side of the cardboard with Mod Podge and fold the fabric over. Be sure to have the open notch on top of one piece and on the bottom of the other. Once the fabric is dry, clip the notches with scissors.
To assemble, push the cardboard strip with the bottom notch into the cardboard strip with the top notch. Place the cardboard insert into the large tin.
For the small tin, create a pin cushion lid. Cut two circles of fabric using the small tin lid as a template. With right sides together and using a 1/4" seam, sew the two circles of fabric together around the outside edge, leaving about 1" unsewn.
Using the unsewn area, turn the fabric right side out. Stuff with Polyfil stuffing and hand sew the 1" open seam closed. Use white tacky glue to attach the pin cushion to the top of the small tin.
