My intention today was to make more wired flowers or a coiled pot or two using fabric I bought on Friday. Instead, I used some existing stash fabric to make a lined and lidded fabric box using Fast, Fun and Easy Fabric Boxes, a book by Linda Johansen which I bought from a local charity shop a couple of years ago. I’ve looked through the book many times but had never made a box until today and I’m glad I finally did. It took several hours from start to finish but there’s nothing difficult about the processes involved. This box is just over 4″ square and 3″ high and the book provides instructions for making boxes of different shapes and sizes and I’ve got one or two ideas of my own, particularly with regard to embellishment, so I’m sure that this box won’t be the only one that I make.
