Boxing Clever

The girls enjoyed finishing their fabric boxes at Sewing Club last night. I was especially pleased that they remembered to bring cereal boxes with them for the stiffening. It was a good little project for a couple of evenings for them.

They chose some good contrast fabrics for their outers and linings, and went home pleased with the results.

We talked about making sets of nesting boxes [and the complicated maths involved!] I think it would be fun to make some in Christmassy fabrics to hold gifts. [Tutorial is here if you missed it]

  1. They are lovely. When you consider the cost of buying a nest set, it is much better to make them, even with the dreaded calculations!
