I made these fabric cubes for lapoli so she can load them up with goodies to give as gifts.  I used a loosely woven cotton (linen look) for the shell and a very stiff fabric of undetermined fabric content for the lining.  Both the liner and the shell are interfaced with decor bond weight interfacing.

Pretty, I like the simple look to them!  I should really get round to making some of these myself, they're so useful.  Would be great for putting Christmas presents into! Smiley

I love these fabric "boxes".  I love the natural colors and look of them.  Did you use any innerfacing on it? (That's what's keeping me from trying one of these babies.  No innerfacing). They are wonderful gifts.

I use a fusible interfacing.  I sometimes add a layer of quilt batting as well.  You can make a small version of this using stiffer fabrics and not worry about interfacing.

Thank you for the tips.  I've tried using the synthetic and fabric interfacing I have access to but it didn't seem to add any rigidness (hope that's a word).  I do have lots of quilted batting. I'll give that a go.  Thank you A2K.
