Tate & Lyle tin pincushions

10 Oct

Upcycled vintage retro pincushion

The Tate & Lyle tin is a classic of packaging design. “Out of the strong came forth sweetness” reads the motto on the tin. I’ve been making these into pincushions as little gifts for friends who sew, or just friends who like retro packaging in their pantry. Now they’re in the Pink Sister shop in time for filling stockings. You can choose from British RacingĀ Green (golden syrup) Tate & Lyle, Shiny Red (Treacle) Tate & Lyle, or oilcloth covered tins. Find them here
