I made this piece of crazy patchwork in 2013 and although I have photographed it and have tote bags and cushions made from the ensuing fabric, I have never made anything with the fabric itself.
Another little fabric box seemed just the right project for it.
Still using canvas left over from my needlepoint days, I cut the sides 3″ by 2.5″ and the base a 3″ square
I lined the box with an old T-shirt, the hem at the top.
Here are all the layers, ready to be stitched together.
The base is T-shirt fabric on both sides.
After stitching the layers together with some runnig stitches across the pieces, I blanket stitched the edges
Then sewed the pieces all together to form the box
Using some 2ply crochet cotton left over from a dreamcatcher, and a 2.5mm hook, I did a chain stitch all round the top into the blanket stitches, to make a simple shell stitch edging.
