Dear readers, followers, commenters and sewing besties.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
I love each and every one of you. Here’s a box of candy.
Yes, I made this box which is folded and glued, complete with a heart on top. My friend Vera showed me how to make it a few years ago; she used one of the freebie project sheets from Hancock Fabrics. I can post pictures of my box, but cannot detail the instructions since they belong to Hancock Fabrics. Copyright and all that, you know…..
These are the supplies I used: the pattern sheet (Hancock freebie from years ago), scarlet red silk dupioni, posterboard template, Pellon EZ Steam II (double sided fusible). Not pictured: glue, scissors, exacto knife to cut into tight corners and a Hera marker (or similar thing) to lightly score the fold lines.
I need to work on the paper/fabric/fusible skills, and some other crafting skills (see middle picture). It proves that someone with good sewing machine skills does not necessarily have great glue and paper skills. At the bottom is the inside of the finished box, waiting for the glue to dry.
I think the folded box turned out cute, despite my bad glue skills!
Thank you for reading this blog. Heart you all! Hope you have a great “love day”. Do you always have a crafty, sew-y Valentine’s Day?
