Yesterday I was on Facebook and someone showed a link to this great tutorial for Fabric Boxes which reminded me that I had made several of them. In fact they were so much fun I bought a whole bunch of pretty buttons and……….got busy with other things and forgot about them.
I pulled them out and took some pictures. I have the link below to the tutorial for the boxes but I just wanted to show you how I made mine a little different. You can make the boxes any size. I still want to make a BIG one. The quilting really adds body to it.
On this one the in-cased seam is on the outside.
You have a nice finished inside to the box.
These were the first ones I made (old, old fabrics) and I did experiment with the sizes. I didn’t do much quilting on them and they aren’t very sturdy.
Notice the folded corners……that is what I decided to change.
Tina at Seaside Stitches has an excellent tutorial so be sure and check it out! What a great gift idea!
Note: I did a new post where I show how I did the french seams – you can find it here.
We had some rain last night which turned to ice and snow is coming. I was supposed to go to my grand-daughters school concert but I’m staying home……I just don’t care for driving in bad weather.
