  2. How cool is that? I would have never thought to sew the sides together that way! Thanks for a great tutorial!

  3. Now that fits the bill - I need a cute, reusable box for a jewelry set. If I add a cover to one edge it should be perfect. Excellent tutorial with great photos for aides. Thank you for sharing - now off to browse your blog.

  7. I like it when someone else does the hard thinking for me. What a clever and useful idea this is! Thank you for the wonderful tutorial and the templates. I agree about using as much of your interfacing stash as possible.

  15. Cute little boxes! Thanks, Geta, for the tutorial. I think I could whip up a few of these pretty quickly. That could be a last-minute gift. The easiest one, however, is an Amazon gift card! I love getting them, and so do the recipients. (Those fussy teens can always buy music, if nothing else suits them.)

  20. Those are so cute, Greta, and much easier than they look! I think I still have a partial bolt of heavyweight interfacing from my purse-making days - I need to drag that out!! Awesome tutorial!!

  23. That box looks so simple to make...and looking at the finished product...I was totally thinking...not something I'll ever do! Wow...thank you for a great tutorial!!!

  24. Love the boxes! I'm always needing containers and these are great! I must be strange but kleenex boxes also come to mind...if you turn these boxes upside down and cut an opening in the "bottom" you can cover a kleenex box with the design you want instead of being stuck with the design on the box!

  25. What lovely boxes! I remember my grandma making boxes from Christmas cards something like this.. with a paper punch and crocheting them together now.. thank you for sharing this! I will certainly be making this!

  27. Good Tuesday morning to all. Stash Manicure has done it again....awesome tutorial Geta. I'm definitely going to try these boxes. I'm thinking about making them using 12" - 18" squares.....and adding a lid. They would be good for storing scrapes...where are my 36 hours days....I really need them now!!!

    That looks like a must have book for 'a bag lady'.....and that is me, the bag lady ....love my bags... big bags. I've just added it to my "REALLY WANT LIST'....and sent Santa my revised list... Thanks for the chance to win the "Sew The Perfect Bag" book.

  29. Good Morning/Afternoon Geta....A Picture is worth a thousand words, and with your boxes I can think of a thousand uses.... These boxes are as simple as can be, now that you have given us this delightful tutorial. I would have not known where to begin-except to tell you great job Geta, great job. I am off to your blog to see what else you can do.

  50. I love the tutorial and the fact that you have contributors from Romania! It is a small world!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks Geta, I may just have the time before Christmas to make a couple of these, your method of sewing the sides looks quite easy.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love these fabric boxes! (Where is the quilt w/the foot pocket?)

    ReplyDelete
  53. yes, as a matter of fact, i am looking for fabric bags! so a timely find i'd say :)
    thank you for offering this book !
    looks FAB!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Impeccable timing for this tutorial! I decided yesterday that I needed to sort my small scraps to make them more user-friendly (rather than the bag that is CHOCK FULL and hard to find anything in!). I'm going to have to take a break from quilting my DH's last Christmas present and make some boxes as a fun reward! That book looks fun, too... (must not get tempted further until Christmas presents are done!)
