    And yet more Fabric Boxes

    What fun it is seeing all the different fabric boxes. My thanks ten-fold to whoever gave us this terrific idea! They are just so much fun to see and to make! I experimented with batting...the box on the left is made with Pellon Heat & Bond interfacing but no batting. The box on the right is made with Warm & Natural. I like them both but I find the Pellon easier to work with. Also, on one of them I trimmed the inside flaps off close to the seam with pinking shears. Leaves a little more room for goodies!

    They look great. Thanks for the suggestions on batting/interfacing and trimming.

    Was this made from a pattern? If so, what pattern is it. I showed this to my daughter and she wants to make some. Thanks
    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    I made some and instead of trimming the inside, I had hubby hot glue it to the side, and it still left me with tiny pockets for small scizzors, etc to go into. I want to try the heat/bond Pallon like you did and thinking it looks neat and straight. Thanks for sharing.
