I found the cutest sewing boxes and directions for them. You can change the size so easily. But one thing befuddled me. Where to get the vinyl you sew to the front (with binding strips of fabric around it) on both sides and the bottom so you can put a label in it though the top so it says what's in the box. A window, I guess you would call it.
I looked for an hour online and finally found a place. I emailed them Sunday. This morning at 7:30 am they called me and apologized for not calling sooner. They were off for the holidays. We talked and for 40 cents each, they are sending me 12-3"x4" pieces of double folded viny. She told me to just carefully cut off the small edges and I'd have two pieces of single vinyl for each double piece. Perfect!
I ordered 12 pieces of vinyl at 40 cents each and it came to $4.80 plus $1.95 shipping. It came to $6.75 total. They are in California. The business is called Everyday Vinyl and their website is www.everydayvinyl.com. Check them out! Excellent customer service. I found it easier to just talk to them on the phone and explain my dilemma.
A picture of the box and directions for it are here: http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2011/09...html#more-4543. I am going to start making them for next year for Christmas presents and birthday presents and just for me. They are so awesome boxes!
