Something fun

                          Not to serious

I think sometimes we take ourselves way to serious, especially when it involves one of our hobbies.   

While visiting one of the many blogs I like,   I noticed this fabric box. It is cute, not serious at all and I had to give it a try.
You will find the tutorial here--

                    Not to serious fabric

                                               So far, very simple

                                                Looking like a box. I think I could use it just like this or-----

                  I can fold the top down as shown in the tutorial
                   don't you think it needs cherry buttons?

                             Wonder if I can find some
                                       cherry buttons

                           There you have it. as simple as
                                          one, two, three

  1. Love this. You just gave me an idea for Easter for my three adult kids. Looks pretty simple too. Stash busters rule :)

  5. Yes, I do think cherry buttons would be perfect. Could you just do a regular red button then embroider the stem and leaf to make it look like a cherry? Or use fabric for the leaf like an applique?

    But here are a couple of links if you would prefer actual cherry buttons.

  7. Love it!! I made one of those once but it sure wasn't as cute as yours, Nonnie!! Thanks for the link, because its a cinch I wouldn't have remembered how to do it. I hope you find some buttons or bells or tassels or something to attach to those points...they are screaming for the perfect accent.
