Nesting Fabric Boxes

Another three fabric boxes finished today. The smallest one is bigger than the one in the tutorial over at SewMamaSew.
My three boxes measure 10" x 10",  8" x 8" and 6" x 6".

To make them nice and sturdy I used a stiff interfacing. The kind used in mens shirt collars and cuffs. I also used regular batting with the interfacing.

I have one more set to finish. The batting and interfacing are cut out so tomorrow I'll start cutting out the fabric. I'll be using the same colours but instead of making each one one colour, each one will be in two colours.

  1. Hi Maria, I love your boxes! I like the colors too, thanks for the link to where we can find the tutorial. These boxes are always practical to store all kinds of objects and I like the fact that they are of different sizes, thanks for sharing your project, I love them!

  2. They came out lovely and I like the bright colors.

  3. They DID come out lovely - once you decide to do something you're amazing - you just sit down and get it done! I tend to waffle and goof around and then run out of time and have to sew late into the night, LOLLLLL!

  4. I can think of so many uses for your nesting fabric boxes, Maria. They stand up so well with the heavy interfacing and batting.
