I made this for a Fantasy swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74897.10

I made a sewing box which I tried to stencil a labyrinth on (not terribly well) But the box itself turned out really nice.

And this is closed

I used to make these with my grandmother when I was little. I hadn't thought about them in quite some time. I'm going to make them with my sons for Mother's Day for all of their Grandmothers. I thought even the ones who don't sew might like one for small mendings, of fixing buttons.

The fabric on the inside is cute! I'm sure the grandmothers will love them, good idea!

At first, when i looked at the top picture, i thought it was going to be like a wallet (which would also be cool), but your second picture cleared that up for me. I really like the design of it, plus the fabric on the inside lining.

I used old cereal cardboard.
I basically cut 2 of the base. Then I cover each with fabric, then I glue them together (adding anything to hold things on if needed. (Elastic for the tape measure and seam ripper, fabric pocket for the scissors, hooks for the hairband to hold the spools of thread, and wool felt for the pin/needle holder)
Then I made the top from another cereal box, cover it with fabric (a little batting on the top first) then I cut out a square for the inside and cover it with fabric to cover any ends on the inside of the box top. (I hope this makes sense).


I guess to actually answer your question.... cereal boxes  Grin

Thank you for the compliments.

Thank you Dyabolica for the information on the etui boxes. I did a quick search for them and found many like this. Most had more than one layer however. I'm just wondering and I don't know if you know this. Do you pronounce it  eh too ee ? I would hate to say something and be totally off in the pronunciation. Thanks
