Little boxes and other items

Whilst blog hopping a few weeks ago I fell across these cute fabric boxes and just knew that I would have to make a few.

As you can see I made 5 using three  different sizes.   I also used a stiffer interfacing in four of them from the first one that I made.    These would make cute tissue box holders, bits and pieces holders, thread catchers, gift bags  or whatever you decided to do with them - they would certainly brighten up a room.   If you would like to make one or three or ???? you can find detailed instructions at the website below.

I enjoy making small useful gifts to put in Christmas stockings or to add in as an extra into a gift and the kitchen towels below were gratefully received by relatives and friends

My next door neighbour had a baby boy just prior to Christmas so out came the burp cloth pattern for some boy themed burp clothes.      My DIL has a cousin who is due to have a baby later on this month and she asked if I would make her some burp clothes as well.   I just repeated the same fabric as they do not know what  the sex of the baby is.    Well  they are not revealing if they know.    

At present I am in the process of making a grab ball for my granddaughter.     I hope to be back soon with a photo of  it completed.  

In the meantime happy sewing.

The boxes are lovely. I like the tea towels. Could you email me a pattern website? The burp cloths look good
