A few weeks ago during a get together sewing day with my lovely crafting pals, I made a fabric box/bag using a pattern and instructions from the Tilda 'Sew Pretty Homestyle' book. I've had this lovely book for a long time and love to thumb through the pages, it always inspires me looking at such pretty things.
Here's my first attempt
did you spot my wonky bottom ?
I didn't quite get the measurements right when I made the boxed corners, I learned a valuable lesson though and since then I've managed to get my bottoms straight !
After the sewing day I went on to create a few more of these pretty and very useful boxes at home.
isn't this elephant fabric just the cutest thing ?
I made a slightly larger one with this fabby red and white zipper and pins fabric so it will hold some of my folded fat quarters of fabric and look cheerful in my craft room.
doesn't it look fun with the red gingham in the bottom
I made one more box/bag which I'll share with you in another post.
I hope you enjoyed today's projects, thanks for visiting.
