I've been wanting to make myself a couple of fabric storage boxes for a while now. While looking around for a pattern or tutorial that suited my needs, I found this one that I really liked by Pink Penguin. I loved the shape and easy construction of the main sections. But, as many of you know, I don't quilt yet and too many small pieces still make me nervous. LOL I also needed something a little larger. So, I altered the size and construction slightly, and I think it turned out just fine. :)
The finished size is about 13"L x 8"D x 10"H. A medium weight interfacing was used on both the exterior and lining fabrics. Then fleece was sewn to the exterior fabrics following the lines of the vines on the fabrics.I made a removable rigid foam core insert to support the bottom. And a matching linen tag holder.Now, since my friends have all become unwitting guinea pigs for my sewing projects, this storage basket went to someone with three children. That's why the tag has "TOYS" on it. When I make my own, it will likely be used for magazines, the many unfinished sewing projects, or ribbons and trim.
