This super simple box is so useful for storing anything you wish in.
HOW TO DO IT
Cut the following from oil cloth
Two 5” by 5” squares
Four 6” by 5” rectangles
Four 7” by 5” rectangles
On the 5" by 5" squares (the bases) draw a square in the centre that measures 4” by 4”, this will act as your sewing guide.
You will now need to sew the sides onto the square base, be sure to use the sewing guide. Each time you sew on a side flatten out.
Next you will need to sew the sides together.
Trim sides and bottom, this will help with the shaping of the box
You will need to do this for both the rectangles. The 6” by 5” box will need to be turned through, it is worth spending a bit of time ensuring this is done well and the corners are poked out, it will help with the shaping of the box.
And finally place the two parts together and you are done
You may have noticed that I have sewn the top of some of my boxes, after making a few I have realised that I don't need to do this, as the oil cloth holds its shape so well. I think it looks so much neater.
