    I have been thinking about hopefully doing one just a bit taller than I did with the one from last night. I have a 16 1/2 inch square ruler and will use that as a guide. I hesitate to do it way larger as I think I may have a slightly not as stiff box as I would like and I will keep it in mind the triangle/ seam is the height. Now I have to go do dishes.

    I've been wanting to make one of these and tonight I did! I used the original site at the beginning but cut my square at 13" because that was what fabric I had. After turning & quilting... I chose randomly to measure up 2 " from the corners & drew my diagonal....stitched on there and then again 1/4" away.... and trimmed off to the 1/8th" marking.... whew... then followed the directions here & ended up with a little fabric box the exact size that holds a toilet paper roll!

    Thank you. This has a "neater" interior and I think I would really like this. Made several but didn't use this method yet.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I am definitely going to try this with some of my extra fabric. Pictures help.
