Fabric BoXeS

This weekend while Vito worked on the bathroom, I stiffened and folded fabric into cute boxes. Once I started I couldn't stop,
I must have made a dozen of them.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with all of them but they are really fun and will probably get used to wrap up Christmas presents.
I brought a few to work.. great for rubber bands, paper clips, little scraps of this and that.
If anyone is interested in making one or some, I can send you the pattern...
they are cute made with paper too.

Wow! And you only used fabric? There's no cardboard? Fabbie!

That's incredible! How did you stiffen the fabric to do that?

It was super easy. 'Aileen's fabric stiffener', from any craft store. It's a thick liquid you thin down to about a milk consistency, drench the fabric, and hang it to dry. It turns stiff as a board. Then I just ironed it.
really fun.

I love your little boxes! So clever.........I would like to have the pattern. Is it something that can be emailed or sent by post? I live in England, but could it have it sent to a US address if that is needed.
Thanks! June
