    Looks like a very cool technique. If you did it flat instead of a box, I think it would make a super envelope for a nook, ereader, Ipad etc. Thanks for sharing!

    question please..I realize you are not in the USA, but was wondering, if instead of using the hard batting, you could use something like Timtex or fast2fuse? They are the stiff interfacing used to make tote bags/purses!

    Oh, you are giving me ideas. No time, but oh it's going to be fun. Now which fabric, maybe the pink print with black/white geometric design, or the gold and brown batik, and just maybe the scrappy look. The possibilities are endless.

    What a wonderful way to use up scraps of batting and the end result is simply stunning!

    I was wondering about using Timtex, also. Thanks for the tute. these would be great for a lot of things - and a way to use scraps.

    This is terrific! And what a neat way to get to show off your machine's fancy stitches too! I love Tartan's idea of making a kindle / nook case too. Really Enci, your project idea could apply to so many other applications, it's wonderful! Thank you for sharing!

    This great and I've saved it for a future project!!!! One question "paper glue strips?" I'm not familiar with this, do we have it here in the states? Maybe a dumb question?
