I've been loving the fabric boxes seen here at All Buttoned Up. They are super cute. But Timtex (or should I say fake-Timtex) and I don't get along, so I knew if I attempted that pattern I'd end up with another disaster.
I found these boxes (2 for 6 bucks) at my local Fred Meyer. They had little handles attached to the front, which I removed. Those patches look like pockets, but they're really just patches that I just fabric-glued to the front.
These little boxes are the perfect size for storing fabric folded using the Happy Zombie magical method of folding found here.And by the way, the ruler fabric? I still love it and still have quite a bit of it, but am getting a little tired of seeing it all over my blog. So that is the last you'll see of it here.
Thank you so much for the birthday wishes! I'm trying to respond to everyone, but for some reason ever since I switched to the new blogger things aren't showing up right for me. I'll click on the name of a commenter and then it will say that the profile isn't enabled. Grrrr. Here's another thing--ever since the switch, bloglines says I only have one subscriber. I'm assuming that's me. How sad. Oh well, best not to care about such things anyway. It's not a popularity contest, right?
OK--I'm heading over to YOUR blog right now... :)
