    I saw this on Oregon Public Broadcasting...VERY simple to make! People wrote me and asked for a tutorial....in one hour I had it made -- INCLUDING taking the pictures!!!

    The original video said to use grosgrain ribbon. I only had regular ribbons on hand. I'm going to use fray-check on the ends to keep them from unraveling.

    You can make any size box you want....and adjust the sides to what size suits you. I refolded my fat-quarters to make them fit nicely.

    ENJOY!

    Sew 1/4" around the sides leaving an opening for turning

    Original video said to mark 2" in on all sides

    Cut 1/4" ribbons. Add 6" to each end of the box (if box is 8", cut ribbon 20")

    Cut 2 pieces of fabric...any size you want -- this is 8" x 7" - original one was larger

    Pin the corners and double check what you have --- Because my box was small, I reduced the 2" to 1 1/2"

    Pull up the corners and tie ribbons in a bow.

    Lay the ribbon on the line you drew and stitch with decorative stitch. Sew from the topstitch line to the topstich line! I glued my ribbon down so it wouldn't slip on me.

    Repeat for the other two ribbons

    I have made these before and you did a great job on this. I have placed cardboard in the center to make the bottom firm too. I do this when I am using them in a drawer as a divider. Thanks!!!!

    Thanks, np3! That's a great idea about the cardboard. I've also thought about using the plastic canvas so they'd be washable!
