One of the thing I love about the techniques I shared in Fanciful Utility is that they can be used for so many projects. This time of year, FanU is great for fun, festive projects. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some of the ways FanU gets Festive.
This Gift Box is a variation on the popular French sewing case I make. It uses the basic box making techniques from Fanciful Utility. This size box is nice for holding many special gifts – hair comb, a necklace, an ornament, 9 tasty truffles, a small portrait and many more.
Make your box, or boxes, up using one fabric, alternating fabrics or a patchwork of fabrics. You can use Christmas fabrics for a festive holiday look, favorite prints to personalize the box, homespuns for a folk look, modern batikis for a flurry of color…. there are so many options.
