Something new!

I was falling asleep last night and thinking about the fabric samples I had to work with (thanks Carol!) and I thought I would like to try a fabric box like the one in the Amy Butler book, In Stitches. Since I am still not 100% migraine free, when I looked at Amy's pattern (although VERY basic and easy to follow) it still felt like too much work. After a few minutes of Internet searching I found this tutorial for fabric bags (they look kind of boxy to me), so I tried it.




It seems a little bit more baskety than boxy, but I like it. I think I might make some out of Christmasy fabric and fill it with gifts. I used super-duper heavy-wight interfacing so it is very stiff. Hmmmm...more holiday sewing?? Probably.

Cute!

Great for christmas decorations and gift giving -- or spring -- or birthday -- just change the fabrics!
