Fabric Box Tutorial Update
This post just shows how I did the sides, you can check out the original post for more information.
You can put the enclosed seam on the outside.....or on the inside.
Right away you will notice that this box is......tall! I love to experiment.
Here I am marking the corner.....yes, I did 4 inches......less would have made a shorter box. Stitch on the marked line. Do all four corners.
The original Fabric Box post was here and I had quite a few questions about how I did my seams, several people were no-reply bloggers....if you didn't get a email from me....that is you, so I decided to make another one and take some photos.
Here is the box before trimming off the corners.
Scant ¼ inch seam
After stitching the seam you will cut off the corner. I trim it a SCANT ¼ inch from the stitching so it will be easier to encase.
Here is what the box looks like so far.
Now I have turned the box right side out.
We are going to sew a seam on each side.
Note: the white line I drew is NOT the stitching line, that just shows the bottom of the box.
Looking at the photo above you can see that I just kind of started sewing the seam where I thought the bottom of the box would be. I used a little bit larger than a ¼ inch seam to make sure I enclosed the raw edges of the seam.
Sewing the seam, ( I turned the piece so you could see the stitching better).
Here you can see the inside seam is enclosed on the right. The left seam hasn't been stitched yet.
Now you just sew down the sides and add a button. I hope this really helps you see how I changed the fabric boxes and if you still have questions just ask.
Here are a couple new fabric baskets that I have made. One even holds my Aurifil thread!
