Fabric Box Tutorial

I needed an easy way to store my electronic chargers and cords, so I decided to make a fabric box. I love the deep yellow (mustardy, if you will) and grey combination.

Here's what you need:

Two fat quarters (or similar sized pieces of fabric)
Fusible interfacing
Sewing machine

I used all the electronics I was planning on storing as a size guideline. I cut a 12" by 12" square in each fabric.

Iron interfacing to the back of both fabrics according to directions. Heavier interfacing works best, but I used what I had and it was still pretty sturdy.

Sew around all sides with fabrics right sides together. Leave a 2"-3" opening for turning.

Clip corners & turn.

Top stitch all the way around. This adds a decorative touch and closes the opening at the same time.

Now, to make it a box. Grab each corner and fold each side on itself so that it forms a triangular point & pin. Repeat for all the corners.

To sew the corners, I sewed from bottom to top. Backstitch a few times for stability. Repeat for all corners, trim threads, & marvel at your creation!

I'm going to expirement with sturdier interfacing for sure. Love these boxes!
