    Does anyone know how to join the rectangle or square cloth cover clothes line boxes?

    Thanks,

    I' m not sure I follow but if you could send a picture I'm sure one of us could give you instructions on finishing. Is the cover attached or freestanding?

    Picture attached.

    I understand how to cover the clothes line but not how to join the sides together.

    Thanks,

    Sharon

    probably just hand stiched on the back in squares an assembled by hand stitching. But maybe the material that is around it secures it with a bow. I saw these too and thought that would be the way I would do it. I'll do some more searching......they woudbe sturdy and last a long time. jacqui

    I agree, I would sew them together at the corners. What about the lid?? :?:
