I found you can make the cardboard quite a bit smaller and it still adds the structure but makes it way easier to sew.

Good idea, I love needles... why didn't that occur to me? =)  I will give that a try this weekend.

Thank you so much for the tutorial on this - I had to make one for my boyfriend's mom!  She quilts, and so I think she should appreciate a hand made gift.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, though the stitching wasn't very tight around the cardboard...



x-posted, cause someone else used the same fabric for their MIL... funny!

First time posting a pic so fingers crossed. I saw cute anarchy's pic in the other thread but was unable to locate the original thread. You would not believe how many results you get searching for box and basket.

Whilst waiting impatiently for her lovely response to my query, I came across Diyosas tutorial for upholstered boxes. By combining your pic and her tute, I made something similar.

I wasn't sure of the measurement so I used a Fat Quarter, squared it up and made rouleau tubes out of the scraps. No wastage! I used scraps of quilt wadding to encase the cardboard on both sides, as Diyosa did.

I love this and plan to make more as soon as I have some more scraps. I have been on a box/pincushion making binge to use them up and have been too successful.

Looks like your box turned out great!  I love the fabric you used as well.  Great job, I am totally making more of these too!

I know this is an old post. I've been lurking for years, and haven't shared, so when I finished this, I thought I'd start sharing. I used the plastic canvas and made it smaller for a napkin basket.
