Fabric Box

Hi there! I am excited to show you this cute little fabric box I made over the weekend.  A few weeks ago my mom made a bunch of these and gave me one! I was so smitten with these little boxes--I told her she had to show me how to make one.  Well I finally had the chance to visit her last weekend and she helped me make this charming little box:

It was so easy to put together, and only took about an hour to complete! I love projects like that!  It is so satisfying to start and finish something in an hour or less.  

And I actually used some leftover scraps I had from the Pickup Line Bundle! So I have literally gotten two quilts -- (Hidden Star, and the Irish Chain we are working on right now!)  and now a fabric box from one bundle! 

The tutorial that we followed, was very clear and had great instructions.  We did change the size of this box here though.  Instead of using a 10" square, we used an 8" square.  

I also decided to quilt this following the chevron lines.  My mom came up with the idea, and I thought it would be perfect for this chevron print by Michael Miller! :) 

 Here is the inside--I love this fun dot print by Michael Miller

Like I said, the box is jut a little thing and measures 2.5" high.

I decided to put all my basting pins in the box--they fit perfectly!

If you want to make one of these little beauties yourself, you can find the tutorial I used here!

Also, I just wanted to mention that the shop is having a huge sale on already marked down items!!!

This is a fantastic deal and a great time to stock up on some of your favorite fabrics that are on sale! :)

I made one of these but tried to follow another person's modification to it. I didn't end up with that person's design but something totally different, yet cool . . . an oddly interesting shape mine was.
