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 -- Iincluding 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
attachment-102424.jpe

Turn and press, topstitch 1/4" from edge
attachment-102425.jpe

Cut 1/4" ribbons. Add 6" to each end of the box (if box is 8", cut ribbon 20")
attachment-102618.jpe

The original box -- with fat quarters
attachment-103326.jpe

Cut 2 pieces of fabric...any size you want -- this is 8" x 7" - original one was larger
attachment-103327.jpe

Cut Iron-On fleece the same size
attachment-103328.jpe

Pin the corners and double check what you have --- Because my box was small, I reduced the 2" to 1 1/2"
attachment-103350.jpe

This is what the inside will look like
attachment-103517.jpe

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!
