    Red face French seams outside the box.....

    ...this is what I tried with this one and I must say I think it looks quite neat!!! I prefer to make these boxes with french seams and it was just another option. It's to be a little Easter Bunny for my Breast Cancer Care Nurse Nancy
    Thanks for looking

    Very cute...love your fabric choice. And i'm with you. I did a few at Christmas time and used the French seam method. It took longer of course, but i did really like the look of the finished product so much better.

    Also wishing you GOOD HEALTH in 2015 !!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    nice idea!!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    What a sweet gift you made her. I am sure she will appreciate it especially when you tell her you made the basket.

    Gee Maryellen, they are soooo easy and quickly made, with all the necessary material cut, takes about an hour to make one!!! Have you got the right pattern??? Ohhh I'm sure you're only feeling green because spring is coming over where you live!!!

    What pattern did you use for the French seams? It's a pretty basket.
