>Boxing Clever

>On my travels around the internet I came across a pattern that I had to make as it seemed very simple yet so clever.

I was aiming for a box 3 1/2″ tall so adjusted the formula to suit. My first attempt using scrap fabric wasn’t too successful as I made the outer sleeve too tall:

The next one in the same fabric was a bit better:

Then I dug out one of my favourite fabrics that I got in the sale at Fabric Rehab:

I only used the nice fabric for the outer sleeve so that I’ve got some left for another project in the future.

and one together:

It’s a very clever pattern and cardboard is used to support the sides so it can be removed & the ‘box’ washed.
